You can add some grated carrot or pomegranate pearls. But I always like this way with only tempering. Enjoy with any pickle. My mom always uses milk with curd while preparing curd rice in the morning for lunch. So by the time when we eat it will be perfect. If you are preparing and eating immediately use the only curd.

Notes

You can add some grated carrot or pomegranate pearls.

Addition of butter is optional but it is highly recommended for creaminess.

If you make it in morning for lunch, you can use more milk and less curd. If you want to eat immediately use more curd and less milk. Adjust accordingly.

Skip the green chilli when making for kids.

Don't add curd when the rice is hot. It should cool down a little and then add curd.

If you use more milk, sourness will be correct when you serve the curd rice.
