Coconut Rice

Coconut Rice

I am a great fan of variety rice. Its a good lunch box dish. The variety rice goes well with potato fry or channa masala. Today the combo was some fries and spiced onion. Out of all variety rice my favorite is Coconut Rice and Tomato Rice. I use peanut oil and sesame oil for almost all my cooking, but for the coconut rice adding coconut oil really adds a heavenly taste to the dish.


Cooked rice- 1 cup
Shredded Coconut- 1/2 cup
Bengal gram - 1 tbsp
Coconut oil - 1 tbsp
Peanut Oil- 2 tbsp
Chopped Green Chilly - 3 nos
Salt as required
Curry leaves - a few
Mustard- 1 tsp


Heat oil in a kadai. Fry curry leaves and green chilly.
Add mustard, cumin, salt and fry well.
Add bengal gram and fry for a minute without changing the color of bengal gram.

Add shredded coconut and fry well.
Put off the flame and add this fried coconut mix to rice and mix well.
Serve hot with fries and spiced onion.
