Garnish with chopped coriander and keep in refrigerator to chill

 

Serve Chilled !!!

 

Tip 1: Tastes best when served CHILLED
Tip 2: Add a little warm milk before adding curd   to avoid sourness when prepared in advance like while we pack it for lunch or to take it while travelling.
Tip 3: One may also use fruits like apple, grapes and pomegranate instead of vegetables
Tip 4: To make it RICHER one may also add raisins and cashews with the tempering and make it a “ROYAL CURD RICE”..
