    Thayir sadam is a very popular dish and everyone makes it in a unique way. This is my mother-in-law's version. I remember she made this really tasty yogurt rice when we were going on a trip to Mahabaleshwar. My mom makes it with green chillies and ginger. In a way, I am lucky that I get to taste and experiment both the versions and relish it!
