Curd Rice / Mosaranna

This is a dish so simple to make that it can be prepared on days when you are just not in the mood to cook something that takes time. If spending very little time in the kitchen is the goal of that day then curd rice is the right choice. It’s the easiest dish I can think of whenever I am not interested in spicy food or want to eat something light. This is also a good way to use left over rice.

Curd rice or mosar anna in Kannada is usually curd (yogurt) mixed with rice. There are different ways to enhance the flavor of this simple dish; one of them is by tempering it.

You can use homemade curd or Amul / Mother Diary /Nestle probiotic curd.
