Curd Rice

Curd rice is a my favourite.I tried many versions but this one is a definite keeper.I tried adding Greek Valley Yogurt as i dont make curd at home.If you have curd ,use single cream also ,which enriches the taste and flavour.Dont add too much.

I have added the butter in the last and let it melt and added directly to the rice.Dont let it too long as it turns to brown color.Adding butter was definitely tasty,but u can add once in a while .Add jeera before the adding the butter ,as it might turn too brown.

After adding seasoning to the rice dont stir it for too long as all the spices dont get visible ,personally i like to see them on the top.

You can add a pinch of  ajwain if u r serving immediately.You can add fruits of your choice too.
