Perugu Annam / Curd Rice Recipe

Whenever we come home late in the night our first priority is to cook food for our dog (Bob) after that is sorted I think about a quick fix for our dinner. Since my husband is a South Indian he is a big fan of all the South Indian food and so m I now. Recently at a South  Indian wedding we had authentic Andhra food in a banana leaf and it was just too delicious. So last night when we came home late after a long walk with Bob I asked my husband what he wants to have for dinner he said I want to have curd rice and so I made it.
