curd rice(south indian yogurt rice with fruit and nut)

Curd rice or mosaranna in kannada is most popular rice dish in  south india and Maharashtra.In many temples this dish is served as pasadam(blessed food)after offering to god.Therefore this dish is very divine for me.Many people prefer it with lime or mango pickle, which is a great combination hence this is bit sour.Normally we serve this at the end of our lunch or dinner.If you are travelling and you prefer home cooked food then this is the best choice.I also prefer this dish for picnics and for the my kidslunch box.Because of curd and fruits this dish is very cooling effect which makes a perfect summer dish too.
