Curd Rice

Curd rice is the best comfort food i know, and it actually works! In my college i was the only fraud mallu girl in my group of which majority were Tamilians. Courtesy to my lovely friends i learnt a beautiful language -Tamil. Gradually i started watching Tamil movies and also conversing in Tamil with them , which i knew was a laughter session for them. Nonetheless, i also got introduced to a lot of mouth watering veg dishes like curd rice, podi n many more :)

We used to hardly eat in our hostel mess and by lunch time you would find us at a nearby hotel which was second home to us for food! To all those good times and to all my friends .. this recipe is for you guys and the lovely moments we had together!
