Coconut Rice ( My style)

Preparation time: 30 min
Servings: 2

  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated Coconut
  • 2 Green Chilies chopped to taste
  • 2 tbsp Ghee / Clarified Butter
  • 1 tsp Chana dal / split yellow lentil
  • 1 tsp Urid dal / black gram dal
  • 1 medium Onion chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 spring curry leaves.
  • 8-10 Cashew nut
  • 2 tsp squeezed Lemon
  • Salt to taste

  • Pressure cook the Rice with 1 1/2 cup water ( 2 whistle).
  • Heat Ghee in a pan, add Mustard seeds, Chana dal, Urid dal, green Chilies, Curry leaves and Cashew nut. Saute for 30-40 secs.
  • Add Onion, saute for 2-3 min (until pale brown).
  • Now add grated Coconut, saute for 3 min on a low to medium flame.
  • Add cooked Rice, Salt to taste. Mix well. Finally add squeezed Lemon and mix well.
  • Serve with raitha or any curry. I prefer curry as it contains coconut.

Note: You can finish off  with handful of coriander leaves/ Cilantro.
