Curd Rice | Thayir Sadam | Perugannam


Curd rice or Yogurt rice - Part of South Indian cuisine, is a true comfort food.  A meal in South India is not considered complete unless and until curd rice/thayir sadam is served.

It is really easy to prepare and does not require many ingredients.  The addition of ginger, curry leaves and coriander leaves add a beautiful flavor to the rice.  It is a complete meal by itself and does not require any special side dish, just any pickle will do.
