Switch the stove off. (if you over cook it yoghurt will get denaturated in to water) then
season it with mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves and coriander leaves.
Good for Rotis as well as Rice. Excellent to go with Paruppu Usli. Don't reheat it.

Enjoy Cooking and don't forget to share the happiness :-)
