Bagalabath - curd rice

I always like to eat seasoned curd rice. My mom used to make this every weekend. I learned this recipe from my MIL. I made puliyogare, coconut rice and this curd rice on saturday for aadi perukku. Here is the recipe.

  1. Rice - 2 cups
  2. Fat free yogurt - 3
  3. Fat free sour cream - 1 tbsp
  4. Hot water - 1/4 cup
  5. Fat free buttermilk - 1 small cup
  6. Shredded cucumber - 3 tbsp
  7. shredded carrot - 3 tbsp
  8. shredded ginger - 2 tsp
  9. Green chillies - 2 (finely chopped)
  10. Raisins - 1 tsp
  11. Grapes - 10 or 15 ( cut it into half )
  12. Salt to taste
For seasoning:-
  1. Oil - 1 tsp
  2. Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  3. Cashew - 1 tbsp
  4. Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp
  5. curry leaves - few
First pressure cook rice adding 6 cups of water. When the pressure is released, open the cooker and mash the rice, if necessary add the hot water and mash it. Add the above said, yogurt, buttermilk, cucumber, carrot, green chillies, ginger, salt, grapes, and sour cream and mix everything well. Add water if necessary to adjust the consistency of the rice. It should be creamy. Take a pan, pre heat oil, add mustard seeds when it splutters add cashew, asafoetida powder and curry leaves and raisins and fry it till golden brown. Pour it on top of the rice. Mix it well. Garnish it with coriander leaves. Enjoy the rice with more molaga (curd chilly).
