Thinking about Karnataka Cuisine,this is the first thing I remember . Curd rice aka mosaranna in kannada is little different in karnataka because of the addition of fruits like grapes and pamoegranate seeds. First time when I ate this rice in a kannadigan friend's houseI felt it a little unusual because of the addition of fruits which was kind of new to me. But slowly I started liking this and now I make this even in my house sometimes just for a variety . This can be last in the course of a traditional south indian meal.But this is my first entry to the RCI - Karnataka event hosted by Asha of Foodie's Hope .
Making this curd rice is very easy. Just mix cooked rice with enough curd and add required salt to season it. Now add fried cashewnuts,chopped cilantro,green chiilies if required,chopped or whole grapes and pamoegranate seeds. Season with 1/4 tsp each of mustard seeds and cumin fried in 1 tsp oil.
Authentic Karnataka style curd rice is ready to serve.
