Bagalabath is one of the most common items you can find on a South Indian restaurant menu card. This is nothing but simple curd rice. Bagalabath is considered as a coolant and so eaten at the end of a meal thus easing out the effects of spicy main dishes/starters. A South Indian meal is considered incomplete without Bagalabath!
