My comfort meal after a vacation has to be curd rice and aloo fry.. After all the binge eating, only curd rice can soothe my tummy 😬 Most of you must have tried this already but still thought of sharing both the recipes in this post. If you haven’t tried these yet then probably it’s time to give it a try.
For aloo fry:
Chop potatoes in small cubes and put them in water. Heat mustard oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and a pinch of hing to it. Once the seeds crackle, add chopped potatoes. Mix, cover and cook for a minute. Now remove the lid, add salt, coriander powder, freshly ground pepper powder, chilli powder.. Mix nicely, cover and cook till potatoes are done. Might take 10 minutes. Serve it along with curd rice.
For curd rice:
Cook rice the way you do but make sure to over cook the rice a little. Now heat ghee in a pan, add lots of mustard seeds, curry leaves, grated ginger and green chillies (skip for little ones).. Sauté them a little till rawness of the ginger goes. Switch off the gas, add cooked rice to the tadka and mash it. Let it cool down a little. Now add lots of fresh curd to it along with salt, mix and add little milk to adjust the consistency. Mix nicely, done. Sprinkle lots of pomegranate seeds to curd rice before serving and serve it chilled or at room temperature.
You can add carrots to curd rice for your little ones, just sauté grated carrots along with the tadka or just add grated carrots directly to the the curd rice.
