No doubt this is a popular dish of the south, especially during the summer time. But the common mistake people make is that they add curd fully. To avoid sourness in the curd rice, follow the following tips- Mix the rice with a flat spatula while it is still hot. Add boiled and cooled milk and mix. The hot rice will absorb the milk so keep adding milk till the rice becomes slightly loose. Then add 1 or 2 tablespoons of curd, salt to taste and tadka. Just mustard seeds, curry leaves, a pinch of hing and finely chopped ginger(1 tsp) will also be nice. For small children you can do with out the tadka also. This way the curd rice will not turn sour for 5 to 6 hours. While travelling, this can be eaten the next day also by adding milk to lessen the sourness.
