Curd Rice How to Guide

#1: Use Thadka Pan to fry to save the GAS.
#2: I am using cumin seeds as it will help for digestion.
#3: Chana Dal and Ground Nut are optional.
#4: This goes well with pickles. I will soon post a guide.
#5: Ground Nut takes time to cook, while urad dal takes less time than chana dal and ground nut. So fry it wisely.
#6: This dish is a quick dish and very good for health. Usually, this is made of left over rice, since I did this for the kids, I used freshly cooked rice.
