Seasoned Yogurt Rice/ Dhaddhyojanam

Yogurt rice is usually the last course of the meal in a typical andhra home. At temples and on festivals, this seasoned yogurt rice or Dhaddhojanam (as its called in Telugu) is offered as prasad after puja. This is the easiest prasad and one of the tastiest :)


Ingredients:
2 Cups Rice
1 Cup Plain Yogurt/Curd (or more depending on desired consistency)
2 Tbsp Peanuts
2 Tbsp Cashew Nuts
1 Tbsp Ghee
1 tsp Black Mustard seeds
1 tsp Cumin seeds
2 Tbsp Skinned Black Gram/Urad Dal (Minapa Pappu)
1 Sprig of Curry leaves
2 Green Chillies (cut vertically into 2)
2 Dry Red Chillies
water as needed for desired consistency
Fresh chopped cilantro for garnish (optional)
Salt as per taste

Process:
Cook the rice with some extra water so that its very soft. When done, add salt and mix well. Mash some rice as you are doing this. Add the yogurt and mix really well. You may add more yogurt or may be water to adjust the consistency to your liking.I like mine to be not too hard, and not too runny. In a pan, warm up the ghee, add all the ingredients for tempering/seasoning and saute until done. Add this to the rice and mix well. Garnish with cilantro.

Variations :
Add in some grated carrot too for more color and flavor. My mom garnishes this with Pomegranate seeds.. I love that look.. and taste..

Serve warm with pickle. Enjoy !
