Kambu Curd Rice Recipe / Pearl Millet Curd Rice Recipe - Millets Recipes

I have been hunting for good recipes using millets. I wanted to make any simple lunch recipes using millets so we can include it in our lunch. Finally landed on sharmi's page. I found this curd rice quite interesting. I made it and it was so comforting and totally different from my normal curd rice.

Water - 4 cup
Curd / Yogurt - 3/4 Cup

Take pearl millet in a bowl and wash well. Add it to pressure cooker and cover with water. Pressure cook for 5 whistle, simmer for 15 mins. Turn off the heat and let the steam go all by itself. Open the cooker and fluff it up. Allow this to cool.

Now add curd, milk, salt and mix well.

Add in grated cucumber and carrots. Mix well.

Make seasoning by heating oil and adding all the seasoning ingredients and saute for a min. Add that to the curd rice and mix well.
