Coconut Rice Recipe


This used to be my favorite as a kid. My mom used to prepare lemon rice, curd rice, tomato rice and coconut rice during our family picnics and everybody used to gorge on it literally. The taste is bit on the blander side. Please do not put chilli sauce to spice it up :).. it should be rather served and consumed just as it is.

Rice – 1 cup

For tempering
Oil – 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds – 2 tsp
Urad daal (white lentils) – 1 tsp
Red chili – 2 Nos
Green Chili – 2 nos (finely chopped)
Cashew – 4-5 broken in small pieces (optional)
Curry leaves – 1 sprig
Asafoetida – 1 pinch
Desiccated coconut – 4 tbsp
Salt to taste

2.    Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds
3.    Wait for it to splutter
