Are you thinking yogurt and rice what's so great about it ?Hmmmm...I too thought like that till I started making curd rice the Queen's way.I got this style of pepping up plain rice from my landlady ,who stayed next door .My ...I must tell you about her .She is one twister like cook and horse like on her bicycle ..no kidding guys..
Once my mom was visiting me and for her return journey I planned to make rice .I had not given much thought to what rice ...now here comes the landlady ,she insisted she would make for me..Ok I must say I am glad she taught me how to make this special yogurt rice.To me it was almost similar to decking up a plain looking female to a pretty princess.
