Brown Rice Curd Rice

I never thought of making this into a post but then I wanted to share that this lovely curd rice can be made more healthy by making it with brown rice instead of white rice. We have started including brown rice in our diet and I tried out this simple and easy curd rice. It came out very well and the taste was just as good! I make millet curd rice too and I like both kinds of curd rice. As usual goes well with just a simple pickle.

1. Soak the brown rice for 1 hour. Pressure the rice with 2.5 cups of water.

2. Mash the cooked rice well. Mash it when it's hot so you can mash it very well.
3. Add the curd and milk and mix well. Add salt to taste.

4. Adjust the consistency and taste by adding more or less milk.
5. In a small tadka pan, add the oil, mustard seeds, urad dal, curry leaves and red chilli.

6. When the mustard seeds splutter, remove from fire and add it to the curd rice. 
7. Mix well and your ready to serve!

Brown Rice Curd Rice

1. The amount of water required to cook each brand of brown rice differs. The brand I use, requires only 2 cups of water. But I used 2.5 since I wanted the rice to be a little mushy for the curd rice consistency.
2. I made a very simple curd rice. If you want to make it more special, refer my curd rice post. You can add all of those ingredients to make it more tasty.
3. This rice is to be eaten immediately. If you want to pack this for lunch, then you need to add less curd and more milk. 

Until next time,
