My Favourite 10mins meal to Cook

๐‚๐ฎ๐ซ๐ ๐‘๐ข๐œ๐ž is the greatest example of the simplest of ingredients coming together to create a quick, refreshing, and utterly comforting meal. While I don’t insist on ending every lunch with some curd rice , a good plate of rightly spiced, tempered, and salted curd rice really makes me a happy person. It’s also a great meal if your stomach has not been well or the weather is very hot. Iyengar curd rice has soothing and cooling properties, and is easily digestible. So not only is it a great option for those days when you don’t want to cook and go “๐’๐’†๐’•’๐’” ๐’‹๐’–๐’”๐’• ๐’†๐’‚๐’• ๐’„๐’–๐’“๐’… ๐’“๐’Š๐’„๐’† ๐’•๐’๐’…๐’‚๐’š”, it’s also good for days you are feeling blah or a bit unwell.

4. Add the mashed rice to this and mix well, mashing more as you go. If the mixture is too thick, add water generously. Also add salt at this stage.

The rice will keep absorbing the water as you mix and as it sits so add more water/milk as you go. The curd rice should be loose in consistency.

Serve with lime and mango pickle or anything else you have at home.
