Daddojanam|Thayir sadam-Curd rice
It is a delicacy which brings me back to the temples of Andhra Pradesh.Simple meal of pulihora(tamarind rice),daddojanam(curd rice) and chakkara pongal(sweet pongal made with sugar or jaggery) and laddoo post pooja or havan served post naivedyam.Simple yet the most tastiest.Also a fond memory of food at my bestie’s place,simple treat to beat the heat.
Curd rice and train journey nostalgia
Daddojanam is a common preparation in Andhra,Tamil Nadu and Karnataka especially during summers.When we would travel long journeys in trains from Vizag to north,taking >24 hrs you could see people eating fresh curd rice next day.They would add curd rice and milk before leaving in a tiffin previous night.Next day curd would set in the tiffin and it would taste fresh.Simple preparation yet easy to eat during travel.Back then trains did not have good fresh food on stations and also AC bogies.This would help you beat infections as well as keep your stomach cool.
You can also use the left over rice with curd.I love making curd rice Andhra style and serving it for brunch.
Gluten-free and an easy meal when you are hard pressed for time during deadlines.
