Flattened rice are called Atukulu in telugu. This easily digestible form of raw rice is very popular across Nepal, India and Banglaadesh and is normally used to prepare snacks or light and easy fast food in a variety of Indian cuisine styles, some even for long-term consumption of a week or more. It is known by a variety of names: Poha (Click here for poha recipe) or Pauwa in Hindi, Pohe in Marathi, Chindé in Bengali, Chira in Assamese, Phovu in Konkani, Chudaa in Oriya,Atukula ponai in parts of Bihar and Jharkhand , Pauaa/Paunva in Gujarat, and Chiura in Nepal, Bhojpur and Chhattisgarh.

Daddojanam- Yoghurt rice is a very traditional rice recipe in southern parts of India. It is served as a holy food(prasadam) in almost all the temples. World famous richest Temple Tirumala tirupathi offers this as one of the food to God and give this food as holy food to the devotees. I personally love this prasadam. Coming to the recipe.
Flattened rice/poha/Atukulu-1 cup
Carrot grated finely-1/4cup
Onions finaly chopped-1/4cup
Green chili-1 or 2 depending on how much hot you want
Salt to taste
Note: In temples they do not use onion, cucumber, green chili & carrot. They use Black peppers instead of green chili. You can prepare the same dish with cooked rice as well.
Take a bowl and toss in curd, flattened rice, cucumber, carrot, onions $ salt to taste one by one and mix well. Add 1/2 cup water if you wish. Now keep this mixture aside.
Take green chili+1/2ts cumin seeds+ ginger and grind it into a fine paste with hand grinder. Now prepare seasoning, for seasoning heat 2ts of oil in a pan and add cumin seeds & mustard seeds. Wait until they splatter the add chan dal & toor dal wait until they turn golden brown. Add Red chili & green chili+cumin+ginger paste and saute until raw flavor vanishes.
Add this seasoning to the curd mixture and mix well.
Refrigerate it for atleast 30min. Now the Yummy daddojanam is ready to serve.
