Story of Curd and Rice

Curd and rice are my favorite things,
Oh! How I love both of them.

Curd is like an apology from the Gods,
For making milk taste so bland.
It’s silky-smooth texture,
Paired with sweet, milky-acidic taste,
Makes for a perfect treat.

I love it with Gulab jamoon,
And with fruits  even more.
Oh, how amazing is lassi!
Curd is indeed a boon.

Then comes the rice,
A carbohydrate paradise.
I need it every single day,
Paired with dal and curry.

I like it fried too,
And in my burrito.
I’m not a fan of Sushi,
But, rice makes it okay.

Then people get creative,
Mix the two together,
To create abomination of flavors.
Oh, how I hate curd rice!

Curd is a dessert, and rice a staple.
You don’t mix the two together.
It’s like whipped cream with pasta.
Would you like to try that?

For its awesome health benefits,
I do swallow it sometimes.
But people like to get more creative,
And mess it up even further.

Tadka and pomegranate to uplift it?
That’s like adding cereals and sprinkles,
To a mess of whipped cream and pasta.
Oh, why do people do that?!

Curd and rice are both my favorites,
But together, that’s an abomination!
