Cucumber & Carrot Curd Rice Recipe / Curd Rice Recipe / Cucumber Curd Rice Recipe / Carrot Curd Rice RecipeT



Curd rice is one of my favorite, it has natural cooling properties in this which is perfect for hot summer days. This recipe is one step further because it has as much cucumber and carrots like rice. So it is much more cooling and more tasty..


I have two variation of curd rice here. A fruity curd rice and a plain simple curd rice. Perfect sidedish for this curd rice is pickles, but you can even have it with any poriyal..
