    I used rhubarb instead of tamarind, turned out very tasty. Tried with tamarind too but rhubarb is my choice going forward. Thanks for sharing

    Hi Kavi,

    This dish is so fantastic, and simple to prepare. It tasted so good after I prepared with the exact measurements as mentioned by you.

    Thank you,

      Thanks malar…. Do u really think it's too much garlic?….In this recipe we don't get much garlic smell or taste paa…..any way if u don't like, just reduce the amount of garlic & come back with ur feedback…thanks.

        Kavi! You are right… after 3, 4 days the garlic smell and the hotness minimized. I make that again… I think we are getting addicted to your recipe … 🙂

      Jayamini, it's simple yaa….Take cooked hot rice, mash it well with little salt. Add curd and mix well without lumps. In pan heat oil add mustard and urad dhal, let it to splutter. Then add green chillies–2, curry leaves, asafoetida in low heat. Add this thalimbu with rice and mix well. Garnish with chopped cilantro and grated carrot(little).

      Optional ingredients: 1/2 tsp lemon juice(if u like sour taste),  chopped shallots, chopped mango, 1 red chilli.

      1/2 rice—1 cup curd gives u smoothy curd rice.
