Coconut Rice

This rice is similar to lemon rice, but here we use coconut milk and grated coconut, it is the secret behind the good taste.


 2 cups of rice,
 2 cups of grated coconut,
1/2 cup of coconut milk

Oil for tempering 
Mustard seeds 2 teaspoons
Groundnuts one tablespoon,
Ground nut seeds 25 grams 
Red chilles 2 to 3nos
Curry leaves 4 to 5 strands
Chana dal 2 tea spoons
Cashew nuts 10 for taste
Asafoetida a pinch


Keep  250 gms of rice in the cooker,use coconut milk instead water to cook rice..... rice must not be too sticky..... keep it aside

Take a kadai, add oil, add mustard seeds once crackled, add chana dal, and groundnuts, cashew nuts, red chilles,curry leaves, asafoetida and then saute it till its done. Mix the cooled rice......and serve it with Avial or any curry.
