I have 2 Tamilian friends, a Mallu friend and a Kannada friend. All of them need Curd Rice at least once a day. If they don’t eat curd rice by any reason, they start missing it.

I am about to leave to try Curd Rice in dinner.

I am a South Indian and I don't care if the curd rises or not. If you are talking about curd rice, then I could come over.

Mallus are not much in to curd rice unless they are from Palaghat.

Tamilian friends.

There is a new restaurant opening up in my city boasting "Authentic Indian Cuisine." If they have Curd Rice, should I give it a try?

I distrust Indian restaurants in the US, because the food, 99 times out of 100 is Americanized.

But curd rice is easy enough to make, so maybe it won't be too messed up. And you should have it with pickles (not the vineger soaked stuff, but Indian pickles). I love curd rice, could go on and on about it...

Yesterday night I had Curd Rice in dinner and it was really nice experience. It is very easy to digest.

I guess Curd Rice is very much popular among Tamil.

Yeah Nila, curd good at cool down the body heat and specially TN is very hot so people prefer more curd rice.

Even in North Gujarat, please use to have butter milk with food, which is very much helpful in the summer when temperature went upto 45.

Canned yogurt isn't really authentic Curd... [minding drifting away to my village] there we used to prepare curds from fresh thick buffalo milk... heavenly! (PS. The milk was thick, not necessarily the buffalo.)

Hey CP, have fun with your Curd Rice Date next weekend

Bland generalizations! I am South Indian, Mallu and from Palghat and NOT into Curd rice!

May be someone should start a thread just for generalisations - one at time, and no one should take it personally.

Thats what is served in hotels. Home made curd rice is very simple. Just mix curd with white rice and eat with pickles, sambar, curry anything which is a bit spicy as the curd itself will be a bit sour.

Buttermilk is even better. It is obtained after the fat is removed and diluted with water. This is even better and helps digestion.

Curd rice/butter milk rice is part of the 4 course meal almost in every south indian household. But nowadays it is famous in N.India as well. It is even served in star hotels. Usuallly curd rice is the last of the S.Indian meal which is preceded by dal/curry rice, sambar rice, rasam rice usually in that order.

Perhaps the reason curd rice is liked very much is because after eating sambar, rasam which are very spicy and hot, curd provides a soothing effect. It also helps greatly in digestion. Above all like Idli (another Indian dish) it is harmless to the stomach.

It is simply yummy!!!

Anyone else here in the "I hate Curd Rice" group , except me? I had it once when I was in Bangalore and will never ever have it again. I know quite a few people who hate it,too. Its like Marmite, you either hate it or love it. Going by the response here, there are more lovers in the Java world than haters.

Steaming hot authentic Italian Pizza from Pizzeria down the road (real stuff, as good as when I had in Livigno, Italy - well, almost) with plenty of hot/cold/soft/fizzy drinks goes down really well � especially when you are starving and its dark and desolate out there (winter rolling in)!

In fact, even though you would always miss the maamys� cooking and fancy the distinct quality and taste of homemade dishes and snacks, after a few months away from home, you would invariably start experimenting what�s around you, and I was quite surprised that I liked most of them, and some (Thai, some Japanese and most Indonesian dishes are to die for) I would even miss when I am back in India for any considerable period of time.

Of course, South Indian (Indian in general) food has set very high standards when it comes to our appetite, but all that spicy food also means that we have a very good tolerance to even the spiciest Mexican food or even that green Japanese stuff (wasabi?)

While curd rice in its most basic form is just soft rice with curds and salt, there are more richer versions of it that just leaves you wanting more

Here is one such recipe

In Coimbatore, they serve curd rice with carrots, grapes, and cashews added in it. That adds to the taste. Another flavour of curd rice.

Mattha really tastes great.I enjoy these things provided there is a traditional 'good'(Drinking mattha in copper bowl) ambience.How about Buttermilk kadhi(butter milk+peas flour+ginger+some species)

There is no such thing as South Indian food. .When we talk about South Indian,it covers four states,Andhra Pradesh,Karnataka,Kerala and Tamilnadu.Every state offers variety of food ,quite different in tastes.Even in AP/Karnataka taste differs as these are quite big states in size.Sambar which you get in Vaishali Restaurant is diffrent than you will get in Chennai.Medu Wada in any Shiv/Ruchi/Shanti Sagar is probabally resembles to that from south karnataka.Anyway,last time I ate South Indian!!(Keralian) food was at stalls opposite to ChatuShringi mandir on junction of Senapati Bapat road.If you go to Mumbai,go to A.Rama Nayak besides Matunga(central) station.It offers Veg. Udupi(Southern coastal Karnataka to be specific) food.

Most restaurant on JM road are udipi resturants, and 60 to 70% of Pune restaurants taste the same.

If you really want to try some good south-indian food, try southern-spice (opposite Ruby Hall, behind BC or another branch in Kondhwa on NIBM road) or Riverview (Koregaon Park - Mundhwa road). Ulli Tiyyal with appam in southern-spice is just divine. Ask your south-indian friends, they usually find such places faster...

For good south Indian restaurants in Delhi, Andhra bhavan and Hotel Saravana bhavan in connaught place are the best place. We need to wait in queue to get inside these hotels.
