Hope you all are doing good.. I have been very busy lately with family functions and cousins and friends visiting. Though i made a good deal of dishes in my kitchen , i didnt get much time to capture those in my lenses and not even to regularly blog hop. After all those heavy loaded Veg and Non veg feasts, i made some curd rice, to soothe my tummy and of course my soul :) . This is such a comfort food for me , to fall back on , after all the hustles and bustles, something which makes my stomach giggle with delight. Sharmilee left me a message in my Inji curry post , saying this is a perfect combo with curd rice.usually we eat curd rice as it is , but i decide to give it a try, with the left over Inji curry from my ona sadya and it was awesome.Thanks dear!!
