Curd rice is close to every South Indian's heart, especially for the brahmins, who would not hesitate to admit that it is ambrosia for them.

Serve a South Indian a hearty meal, but he or she is unlikely to be appeased unless the meal is suitably concluded with curd rice, which has a soothing effect, balancing the effect of other spicy dishes!

Plain curd rice can be had accompanied with Lemon Pickle or Mango Pickle .
