Thayir Sadham(Curd Rice)

Thayir Sadham(Curd Rice)


  •     Well cooked/Over cooked Rice – 2 cups (Ponni/Basmathi/Sona Masoori or any other white rice)
  •     Thick Yogurt (which is not sour) – 1 cup (I used Plain Non Fat Yogurt)
  •     Water/Milk – 1/2 cup
  •     Oil – 2 tbsp
  •     Mustard Seeds – 1/4 tsp
  •     Dry Red Chillies – 4 or 5
  •     Curry Leaves – a few
  •     Salt – to taste


Mash the cooked rice thoroughly with the back of a spatula.

Mix the yogurt with 1 cup water and salt to taste. Add it to the rice and start mashing it thoroughly so that is forms an almost gooey paste.

Heat oil in a pan and splutter mustard seeds, dry red chillies and curry leaves.

Stir in the mashed yogurt rice to the pan and mix well. Saute for around 2 minutes so that the curd rice gets heated through and then remove from stove top.

Serve Curd Rice with pickle and Pappadam/Chips.
