When I don't feel like eating rice, I try to substitute other things. One such a thing is Appalam. Appalam is also called Pappad. Appalam is a Tamil name; Pappad is a Hindi name for the same thing.
My favorite appalam is made by Lijjat. There is a lot of good information about the Lijjat Pappad on Wiki; here is a link to the same.
For those who are carb-sensitive, like me, eating Rasam with the appalam might be a viable option.
A hot cup of Rasam is akin to a hot cup of soup on a cold winter day.
Talking of winter, the overnight low, here in Dallas, Texas, is supposed to be in the low 20s. That definitely calls for a warm cup of soup or Rasam. Wouldn't you say?
Bon appetit' :)
