Curd rice also called yogurt rice is a dish of India. The word "curd" in India usually refers to unsweetened yogurt. Unlike the Westerners, Indians mean yogurt when they say curd and what the westerners call curd is called paneer. It is very popular in the Indian states of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Kerala.
In the state of Tamil Nadu it is called "Thayir Sadam". "Thayir"=Curd, "Sadam"=rice. It is offered as 'prasadam' (blessed food) to devotees in Vaishnavite Temples. Here this is called by a different name 'dadhiannam'/ "dadyodanam". To prepare this recipe, we have to combine cooked rice with milk and yogurt and add the tempering on the top and serve it as cool.
