  • Then transfer the contents to the curd/yogurt and add coriander leaves and mix everything well.
  • For curd rice...rice should be cooked mushy and soft.
  • To the cooked rice add 1/4 cup water, mix and smash it well.
  • Now to the rice, add tempered curd and salt.

Instead of green chili u can also use dry red chilies.
