Kodo Millet Curd Rice / Varagu Thayir Satham / Varagu Bagala Bath

Curd Rice is one of the staple food items in India Recipes. As I have been looking to find millet based replacements for traditional dishes, I wanted to find a good, near equivalent for Curd Rice. Curd Varagu has come very close to that. The look and taste is almost like Curd Rice. 

Curd Varagu is a good Recipe for those who want to move to healthy millet foods. If you try it, you might even not go back to Curd Rice at all.

Kodo Millet / Varagu Arisi
1 cup
4 cups
2 cups
Boiled Milk
1 cup
Coconut Oil / cooking oil
1 tbsp
Mustard Seeds
1 tesp
Channa Dal
1 tbsp
Curry Leaves
1 spring
Cashew Nuts (optional)
Dry grapes / Raisins (optional)
Green Chilly
1 inch
Asafoetida / Hing
¼ tesp
As required
Chopped Coriander leaves
1 tbsp

1. Wash and soak the rice for 5 mins. Then add 4 cups of water and pressure cook for 4 whistles in high flame.
2. After pressure has gone allow it into cool down.
3. Grind the green chillies and ginger into a coarse or fine paste without adding water.
4. Heat the oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and wait for popping. Then add channa dal, curry leaves and cashew nuts. Fry till they becomes golden color.
5.  Now add the ground paste and fry for a minute. Allow it to cool down completely.
6. Then mix this mixture with cooked varagu rice. Add curd, milk and salt. Mix them gently and garnish with coriander leaves.

    Healthy and tasty rice is ready. This goes well with spicy potato fry.
