Temple Prasadam - "Dadhojanam"
Originated from "Sanskrit" Dadhi - ODanam means Boiled rice mixed with Yoghurt."Dadhi " is called "Yoghurt" in " Sanskrit" .

Vineela, I agree with my fellow foodies, this is indeed a great comfort food. Whenever I have leftover white rice, I make this so the rice disappears....

Vineela,
Your photo of Curd Rice lifts the dish from simple, everyday fare to a Gourmet's creation. Awesome!

Vaishali said...

Vineela,
It's me again. I am too inspired by your Green peas-Pistachios Doodh Peda, and want to try it out. I have one question, though.
When you say, "Soak in hot water for half hour to remove skin...", do you mean the outer shell of pistachios or are we supposed to skin the pistachio nuts inside the hard shell? Please let me know. I'll start work as soon as I get the reply from you coz I have all the ingredients ready. :)

Hi,

It is dadhbhojanam actually. Not sure what Odanam in Sanskrit is.

Hi Anonymous,
I found the meaning in this website dadhi - odanam
Vedabase
and "odanam " is explained as a "gruel".
HERE also here.
Thanks for visiting.
