Curd rice recipe

with step by step photos and video. Curd rice is a popular and tasty South Indian dish that is served with a South Indian thali or meal. Curd rice is nothing but curd (yogurt) mixed with cooked rice, herbs and then tempered. Curd rice is also known as thayir sadam or daddojanam or bagala bath in some South Indian languages.

The simplest and basic curd rice is simply made by mixing cooked rice, curd and salt. To this basic mixture you can always add some spices or flavorings. The South Indian curd rice is also made in a similar way and then tempering of spices is added on the curd rice which makes it more flavorful and tasty.

I am much into ayurveda these days, so I will share some info on curd rice from the ayurvedic point of view.

Ayurveda mentions that Curd is hot in nature as contrary to the popular belief that curd is cooling in nature. I was told by my ayurvedic doctor to stop having curd rice for some time as I was having an aggravated pitta dosha – meaning heat imbalance in the body and mind.
