Curd Rice Recipe - Thayir Sadam Recipe

Curd Rice Recipe
Curd rice is a comforting south indian rice recipe...Curd rice preparation is very easy..It always makes me wonder how with the simple and humble ingredients it makes a flavourful and complete meal.It is actually not much of a recipe the measures and ingredients can be adjusted as per our reference. I love the buttery creamy curd rice served in grand sweets so tried to replicate it at home and here is my version of it.With all the fruits and nuts it is also called as Bagala Bath.

My Notes:

  • Make sure to cool down the rice before you add curd.
  • If you prefer to add any seasonal fruits then add pomegranate and grapes which are apt for curd rice.
  • You can also add raisins and cashews along with the tempering.
  • Milk is added to avoid sourness when prepared in advance like while we pack it for lunch.I love it cold so used chilled curd.
  • For a creamy version of curd rice, use thick curd.
