Prep:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. In a heavy pan, heat the clarified butter over medium heat. Add the mustard seeds; it should be just hot enough for the seeds to crackle, but not burn. Stir in ginger, garlic, cinnamon, chillies and curry leaves. Cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.
  2. If rice is cold, add rice to pan with a little water, and cover. The steam will separate the rice. When rice is warm, stir rice with spices. Reduce heat, mix in yoghurt, and heat through.
