My brother is a big fan of coconut rice that my mom makes, I too just love it. Its very flavourful and simple to make too. My mom adds soaked and then fried urad dal to this rice, which makes it protein rich and flavourful too. Always the roasted urad dal and coconut is a flavourful combo,like in coconut thogayal.
|Urad dal(white)||1/4 cup|
|Cashews||4 - 5,broken|
|Curry leaves||1 sprig|
- Cook rice with ratio 1:2 (adjust the water ratio according to the rice variety you use) for 3 – 4 whistles. Add a tsp of ghee and required salt and fluff the rice.
- Soak urad dal for 1 hour,drain the water and dry roast it in a pan until its turns golden brown and nice aroma wafts.
- Heat the pan with oil,temper with the items given under the ‘To temper’ table in order.Add the coconut and roasted urad dal and just give it a stir for 1/2 minute.
- Add it to the rice and mix well.
Enjoy the flavourful rice with vadavams or any tomato based tangy curry.
