Bagalabath | Indian Curd Rice

This dish requires no introduction.Most of them would be curd rice lovers and when it is seasoned. No words.Wow it will be heavenly.It is simplest dish I ever made.This one is a delight when you are tired and really bored to cook.Somehow I love the way my Mom prepares it.hmmmm I donno what is different.My Mom would say adding green chillies while seasoning will prevent the rice from turning sour when packing it for lunch. Not sure on those facts. But it adds taste to the dish.

Bagalabath is the most simple dish made out of rice and yogurt.If interested you can add grapes and pomegranate pearls to it..
