Stuffed curd rice balls(north karnataka special)

Curd rice balls are North Karnataka specialty.People here make this for special occasion like festivals, marriages or they pack this for picnics too.After lunch they like to have these balls.In summer its good to have curd balls for cooling effect.
I like to have it with dry garlic chutney or with dal.

garlic-3-4 cloves crushed
green chillies-2 chopped
coriander leaves-2-3tsp (chopped finely)
salt to taste.
For the stuffing:-
pomegranate seeds-1/2 cup
fried cashew nuts-3tsp(fried and crushed) 


  • Cook the rice till soft and mushy so its easy while making balls.
  •  Spread the rice on a wide plate to cool down.
  • Now add all the ingredients and mix it nicely by pressing with fork or spoon.
  • mix nuts and pomegranate seeds for the stuffing.
  • Now apply some water to your palm and start making the balls.
  • Stuff with the pomegranate mixture.
Serve with spicy curry or have it plain.
