Curd Rice

No South Indian meal is complete without at least a small helping of curd rice. Its THE important ritual most of the South Indians follow.I love curd rice/pickle combo. Can eat it everyday without getting bored. 🙂 A nice, spicy spoon of pickle does the magic for me.  Its also a meal in itself if tempered and garnished with fruits and nuts. So today i am sharing the recipe for this yummy dish. Can be prepared before hand for parties/get together.

I try to improvise on recipes without compromising on taste. Cooking is my passion. Though I am not very perfect, I love the imperfections and as they say “there’s always scope of better”. I like to follow that. I believe there’s a story for each recipe and the way it is developed. Also creativity is the secret ingredient of cooking. My inspiration for cooking comes from my mom. As cliched as it sounds, for me she is the best cook. 🙂 Cooking for me is a stress buster. Hoping this space help you too whip some amazing dishes and earn praises from your loved ones.
