Total Time: 10 minutes


1 cup cooked white or brown rice (you can use leftover rice to save time)
1 cup Greek yogurt or high protein yoghurt
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup grated carrot
1/2 tsp mustard seeds

6-8 curry leaves

Combine with Rice and Curd: In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked rice and Greek yogurt or high protein curd. Add the raw chopped onions and grated carrots. Season with salt to taste.
Prepare the Tempering: Heat the oil in a small pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the mustard seeds and wait for them to begin to pop. Then add the cumin seeds, dried red chilies, and curry leaves. Cook, stirring frequently, until the spices are fragrant, about 1 minute.
* Pour the hot tempered spices along with the oil over the rice mixture. Mix well to ensure everything is evenly distributed.
* Garnish and Serve: Transfer the curd rice to serving dishes. Garnish with chopped fresh coriander leaves. Serve immediately, or chill in the refrigerator if preferred cold.
