Method :

1.Pressure cook 1/2 cup of rice by adding 1 3/4 cup of water. Usually I cook 1/2 cup rice with 1 1/2 cup of water (1:3 ratio) but as we want the rice to be mushy for curd rice we are cooking it with extra water. ( According to your rice  variety adjust the water quantity )

2. Once the rice is cooked mash it with a ladle, potato masher or back of the spoon.

3. When the rice reaches room temperature add cold curd/yogurt to it and mix well.

4. Then add 1/4 cup of cold or warm milk to it and mix it well, make sure there is no lump in the rice.

5. Crush finely chopped chilli and garlic with your hand, this is done to release the flavor of chilli and ginger. Now add it to the rice and mix well.

6. Add water and salt to the  rice, mix well.

7. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard wait until it starts to sputter, then add split urad dal and saute until it turns light brown in color.

Note :
  • Do not add curd when the rice is hot.
  • Adjust curd and milk according to taste and consistency required.
  • Few pomegranate seeds can also be added to the curd rice.
  • Curd will thicken as it cools, so when required adjust the consistency with curd or milk.
