South Indian meal will never end up without curd rice. Though I want to post this simple recipe for a long time, somehow I missed it. I love to eat curd rice when it is tempered and garnished with fruits. So here I am going to give you the recipe for authentic curd rice. I am damn sure you will enjoy this.

Pomegranate/Grapes – few(optional)
- Pressure cook the rice, add butter and mash it well.
