    Let me know the after effects afterreading the post o fmine

    Iyers are mostly known for their love for curd. Other South Indian delicacies such as dosas, idli, etc. are also relished by Iyers. Coffee amongst beverages , especially filter coffee and curd amongst food items form an indispensable part of the Iyer food menu.

    Only South Indians end their food with thayir sadam. Earlier school children used to take thayir sadam for lunch in school with some pickle. or idli with milagapodi on it. Now a days parents give so many varieties of food to children in the tiffin boxes and just as there are varieties of food in the lunch box ,the lunch box also has so many varieties. In our days we were given food in a thooku. Those days there were no lunch boxes as now.

    Now coming to thayir chadam, my friends used to say South Indians are very intelligent because they eat curd rice. Just mixing the curd with rice does not have much taste compared to the curd rice we make with ginger, kadipatha and give a thadka of mustard seeds in Oil. And when we have it with any pickle especially if it s avakkai or lemon pickle it tastes so yummy. Also curd rice with puli inji, avial, olan tastes very yummy. Writing of that only my mouth is watering because I am a foody and enjoy food with the right combinations. They say na brahmana bhojana priya.

    But of late youngsters are so busy in their working life that they have no time to enjoy their food in time . Earlier on holidays the whole family used to be there and enjoy having lunch together. I think those days are rare now a days

    Yes Viji Madam. Every meal ends with curd rice for South Indians. Without it meal looks incomplete.
