The most important dish of South Indian MOM. And its not only limited to MOM, here in everyones life its very important,,,,, After every meal they have curd rice, without it their meal wouln't get completed......
South Indian people have it auspiciously........

Five year's back when i joing IHM Bangalore, first time I saw & heard about it. I was very reluctanat about it. Me n my room partner always bet on this if anyone of us will eat one small bowl of it, other person will give Rs. 500/- to him, but we never tried it.........
Time thaught us how to eat it, my friend had some health problem & Doc suggested to only have "Curd Rice",,,,,,,, the biggest shock for us...........

From that time we started eating "Curd Rice", now its my one of the favourite dish but i like the little sour & with nice tadka, typical South Indian one, which have jeera(cumin seeds), rai(mustard seeds), kadi patta, chana dal(split bengal gram), urad dal(split black gram), hari mirchi(green chili) & its my addition shegdana(pea nuts), may people add grappes both green & black & pomogranete...........

Yesterday I took it on tiffin for lunch, few of my friends tasted it & like it alot, they ask me to bring it again & in more quantity so i thought lets put this recipe on blog

I agree with u when u say that south Indians eat this religiously, comin from the same background i'm quite familiar with this concoction. But addition of grapes and pomogranate to it makes me wonder. They say adversity teaches you a lot many things... I guess your friends illness introduced u to something that's gonna be with u for the years to come... Enjoy "Taiir Chaadam" (Thats what we call it on our side of the continent)
