I miss those days when a big bowl of rice with tadka dahi was enough to keep me filled and happy for the day.
If you’re on a Keto diet, you know that rice is off the table. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a delicious and satisfying bowl of rice-like goodness. This Keto Cauliflower Curd Rice is a great substitute for traditional south Indian rice curd recipes, and it’s packed with flavor.
This recipe is easy to make, and it’s a great way to get your daily dose of cauliflower. It’s also a versatile dish that you can serve with a variety of different Indian dishes — from chicken to lamb to fish.

I have made it with cauliflower rice, greek yogurt (or hung curd), and tempered it with ginger and other Indian spices.
So next time you’re looking for a delicious and satisfying Keto-friendly meal, give this Keto Cauliflower Curd Rice a try.
- 1 cup Cauliflower Rice
- ¾ cup full-fat Greek Yogurt (Hung Curd)
- Salt to taste
- 1 tablespoon Coriander Leaves
- 1 teaspoon Ghee (Clarified Butter) (Or Coconut Oil)
- 1 Tablespoon Raw Peanuts, optional
- 1 Teaspoon Mustard Seeds
- 2-3 Red Chilies
- 1 stalk Curry Leaves
- 1 teaspoon Ginger Grated
- A pinch Asafoetida (Hing)
- First, you will have to prepare the cauliflower to cook. Wash cauliflower thoroughly and pat dry completely. Remove the outer leaves and break the cauliflower into uniform small-sized pieces, to include soft stems.
- Now take a mixer grinder and grind the cauliflower 10–15 times until it is in small rice-sized pieces. Remove any full florets that may remain.
- Once the rice is prepared, take a pan, add the cauliflower rice and salt onto it, and sauté at least for 2–3 minutes till the rice is cooked well and tender.
Instructions For Tempering
- Take another pan and heat Ghee or Coconut oil into that. Once the oil is hot, add in raw peanuts and saute them until they are nicely roasted.
- After that, add the mustard seeds and dry red chilies, and let them splutter. Now, add the chopped ginger, curry leaves, and hing (Asafoetida) in the same pan and sauté them for a few seconds.
- Tempering is ready, keep it aside.
- Now, take the cooled-down cauliflower rice bowl and add greek yogurt, and salt (if required) to it, and mix everything well.
- Also, transfer the tempering/tadka into the bowl of cauliflower curd rice and add coriander leaves, cream (optional), and mix everything well.
- Serve Keto Cauliflower Curd Rice Chilled and enjoy!
