A cold bowl of this rice works wonders on hot, humid afternoons. Steamed rice is mashed and mixed with curd into an almost puree like consistency. This is topped with a sizzling mustard seed tempering and a handful of chopped coriander for a healthy, yummy treat.

A typical South Indian delight. Tastes best when served cold. Easy and quick.
