Curd rice recipe, Thayir sadam

Curd rice/ Daddojanam/ Thayir sadam is a delicious and lip smacking summery dish that is prepared by adding tempering to mashed rice and curd. This tempered curd rice is very flavorful and yummy due to the addition of ginger and cilantro in the tempering. This simple and easy to make dish is well known by everyone but just thought to post it as its going to be really hot in the coming days. I have made this curd rice with basic tempering but you can make it more delicious by adding chopped raw mango, cucumber, onion, grapes or pomegranate pearls as well. I have earlier posted few recipes using curd for which links are below:

So lets get to the making!
