This is my favourite dish!! I cannot live without thayir sadham... I need to eat it at least twice a day! The all in one healthy tasty dish!! My dad makes the best creamy pomegranate thayir sadham in the family... He is also known to make the best filter coffee including the thick coffee decoction :)
My friend Priya made creamy creamy thayir sadham last week! She sent me the picture with her recipe.. It looks so divine! Here is the recipe...

Thick Curds -11/2 cups (or to taste)
Milk -1/4 cup (or less)

Oil – 2 tsp
Ginger -2 inches (minced)
Green chilies- 2 (fine chopped)
Curry leaves- 1 sprig
Urad dal-1/2 tsp
Channa dal-1/2 tsp
Hing -2 dashes
Coriander leaves- to garnish
Extra ingredient- Carrot (chopped fine)/ cucumber (chopped fine)/ raw mango pieces(fine chopped)/grapes/Raisins/ Fresh Pomegranate seeds (optional)
[Only one of these added .I haven’t added them in the picture shown]
-In a big bowl, mash well together rice at room temperature, curds and milk with salt. Using your hand to mix generally works the best!
-In a small pan, add oil. When hot mustard seeds, channa dal, urad dal, hing, ginger, green chilies and curry leaves. Sauté.
-Once the mustard seeds begin to splutter and the dals turn slightly brown, add this to the curd rice mixture. Add the extra ingredient (if you choose to) and mix well. Garnish with coriander leaves.
