Days are becoming hotter in Hyderabad now so thought of eating something lighter this afternoon & made this curd rice with jeera & kasuri methi tempering.this curd rice is slightly different in taste then the regular one which we get in South Indian restaurants. Here is the recipe..

Servings 1


  • Overcooked Rice 1 cup
  • Curd 1 cup
  • Fresh chopped coriander leaves 1 tbsp
  • Finally chopped green chilli 1 tsp
  • Kasuri methi 1 tbsp
  • Jeera 1/4 tsp
  • Heeng a pinch
  • Oil 1 tbsp
  • Black Salt to taste


  • Mix curd coriander leaves green chilli & salt into rice . Keep aside in a bowl.
  • Heat oil in a tadka pan. Add heeng & jeera then add kasuri methi. Cook for 30 sec.
  • Pour this tadka over curd rice & cover it immediately for 10 min.. This way flavours of tadka will be absorbed by the curd rice
  • Serve as it is with papad. Else you can keep it in refrigerator for 2 hrs & serve chill.


  • 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.
