Mosaruanna is a beloved South Indian staple dish which is essentially a mix of curd, rice and some spices.
It is usually had at the end of a meal for it's cooling and digestive properties.
On my gut health journey I came across the amazing benefits of homemade curd, or yogurt. It offers benefits for gut health such as providing probiotics that support digestion, enhance nutrient absorption, strengthen the immune system, and improve the integrity of the gut barrier. Probiotics: Curd contains beneficial bacteria, primarily strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, which act as probiotics. These live microorganisms help maintain a healthy balance of gut bacteria, also known as the gut microbiota.
After mastering mosaru (home-made yoghurt) I had an abundance of fresh curds in the fridge. This is when my childhood love for mosaruanna came to me. Believe it or not, my family would even pack this on group picnics - and it was a hit!
I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I do :)
