Daddojanam, Vadapappu, Panakam, Atukulu, Bellam, Honey Naivedyam

Today I worshipped Goddess Saraswathi Devi with flowers and offered Daddojanam, Atukulu, Vadappu, Panakam, Honey and Jaggery as Naivedyam. Here I am posting the recipe for "Daddojanam" (spice curd rice).During Dasara Navaratri in temples, this Daddojanam is served as Prasadam. It is a simple and quick recipe by just mixing rice with curd and tempering it. 

I made this Daddojanam with minimal ingredients. The key ingredient in this recipe is "Curd".Fresh curd and right amount of salt gives excellent taste to this Daddojanam. Well, let us see the procedure for high protein rice recipe "Daddojanam"..

Naivedyam For Goddess Saraswathi

Ingredients :
1/2 cup rice
2 cups fresh, full cream curd
1/2 cup whole cream milk (boiled and cooled)
Salt to taste
1 small piece of Ginger
5-6 Green chillies
1 Spring Curry leaves
For Tempering / Tadka/Popu :
2 table spoons Oil
1 table spoon Chana dal
1 table spoon Urad dal
1 table spoon Pea nuts
1/4 table spoon Mustard seeds
1/4 table spoon Cumin seeds
2 Red chillies 
a pinch of Hing
                                      Daddojanam Nivedan For Goddess Saraswathi

Method :
1. Wash the rice and cook in Pressure cooker by adding water for 2-3 
    whistles. After 3 whistles,turn off the flame.The rice should be mushy.
2. Let the rice cool. Once cool down add required amount of salt and curd
    to the rice and mix well.
3. Heat a pan with oil, add chana dal , urad dal, peanuts, let it fry for one
    minuite till they turn golden colour. Then add mustard seeds, cumin 
    seeds, broken red chillies, curry leaves, fry for one minuite on medium
    flame.
4. Now add finely chopped ginger pieces, green chilli pieces and fry one 
    more minuite and turn off the flame.
5. Add luke warm water to the curd rice and give a good mix.
6. Now add the talimpu to the curd rice and mix well.
7. That's it !!! Daddojanam is ready to serve.
8. Transfer it to serving bowl and offer to Lord Saraswathi Devi as 
    Prasadam.

Notes :
  • Curd should be always fresh and thick
  • Rice should be mushy.
  • Always mash the rice well before adding curd.
  • Add only luke warm milk to the curd rice.
  • Do not add too much seasonings to the curd rice, it spoils the taste of daddojanam
Offer this "Daddojanam"as naivedyam to Goddess Saraswathi and serve to your family as Prasadam. Please leave your feedback here to improve my blogging skills. Will meet you with another interesting recipe, till then bbye...
