Curd rice is close to every South Indian's heart, especially for the Brahmins, who would not hesitate to admit that it is ambrosia for them. Serve a south Indian a hearty meal, but he or she is unlikely to be appeased unless the meal is suitably concluded with curd rice, which has a soothing effect, balancing the effect of other spicy dishes!
