  • Pour this tadka over curd rice & cover it immediately for 10 min.. This way flavours of tadka will be absorbed by the curd rice

Recipe Notes

  • You can omit green chilli & add whole red chili in tadka . Red chilli can be taken off when serving it to kids. 
  • You can also add some grated carrot , beatroot or cucumber for kids
  • If you don’ t like either of green or red chili add 1/4 tsp of ground black pepper . It gives really good taste.
