Smoked salmon stuffed Curd rice / Thayir sadam

curd-rice-2Curd rice/ Thayir sadam is more often eaten by the south Indians as a part of meal. Rice and yogurt are the 2 main ingredients that go towards making this. It is called as thayir sadam in kerala. Yogurt rice can be made in different ways. I am sharing this with bit of fusion of smoked salmon, capers, gherkins and onion. Cooked rice is mixed with curd and then tempered to make it mildly flavorful.

  1. Smoked salmon is my absolute go-to food …. I love it unreservedly and eat it whenever I can – this is a fabulous new way of using it and I am going to make it tonight …. just need to nip to the supermarket to get the salmon and we’ll be away! Thank you SB – you are my go-to one-stop recipe shop these days 😁
