  • If you are making for lunch box, travels, picnic or parties, i mean for making many hours in advance, then increase the quantity of milk and reduce the quantity of curd and keep it to a loose consistency.
  • You can use any variety of white rice like basmati rice, Sona masoori rice also brown rice for this recipe.
  • You can also make a sweeter version of curd rice with the addition of fruits like grapes, ripe mangoes, bananas and pomegranate arils.

Notes

Never use hand for mixing if you are preparing this to have later.
Never add curd to the hot rice. It will leave some water and you will see the rice and curd separate, which is not good for your stomach.
Add cucumber and watermelon in the end just before serving.
