Curd Rice – Yogurt Rice

Curd rice is my most favourite dish and I cannot finish my meal without curd. During my school and college days my mom used to make curd rice for lunch even without any seasoning. OMG!!!It was the best..Me and my friends used to fight for that curd rice.

In tamil month Purattasi, saturdays are auspicious for Lord Balaji and we generally make variety rices, sundal and vada, sarkarai pongal on one of the saturdays. Last saturday I made everything and we enjoyed the lunch with our friends.
