Dahi Semiya

This is a simple but yet lovely breakfast for a summer morning, though its supposed to be summer here like yesterday but we had some flurries on Saturday night, I could not stop my self from making this.

This is my contribution to the Fun 'n' Sun event hosted by easycrafts.

11/2 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup milk
1/2 inch ginger grated
1 green chili, chopped
1/3 cup cucumber, chopped
1 tsp mustard seeds

1/4 tsp urad dal
1/4 tsp oil
2 dry red chili (optional)
little curry leaves (optional)
3 tbsp coriander leaves, chopped
salt to taste
Sev/Bhujiya/boondi for garnish


  1. Cook Semiya as per packet instructions. Drain and keep aside.
  2. In a large bowl beat the yogurt well, add the milk, salt and cucumber.
  3. Once the semiya is cooled add it to the yogurt and mix well.
  4. Heat oil in a pan, add the dry red chili.
  5. Add the mustard seeds, channa dal and urad dal.
  6. Once they start to splutter switch of the gas, add the green chilies and ginger and pour over the yogurt and semiya mixture.
  7. Mix in the coriander leaves. Adjust seasoning.
  8. Serve with Spicy sev, bhujiya or bhoondi.

Thank you so much, Thank you Cham I sent in my entry did not know about the event.

Mallugirl - yes it is like curd rice just that instead of rice we add semiya. I am basically from Bangalore but am in Canada from 2000. You must be from Kerela. Thank you for dropping by.
