Coconut Rice | Thengai Sadam | Mixed Rice Recipes

One of my favorite and easy to do rice recipe is Coconut Rice. Its great as a lunch box dish and is filled with the coco nutty flavour. 

Prep & Cook time ~ 15-20 mins
Serves ~ 2

Ingredients

1 cup cooked rice
1/4 cup grated coconut
20 groundnuts with or without skin/ cashew nuts
1/2 inch ginger, finely chopped
6-7 curry leaves
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp urad dal (white)
1/2 tsp channa dal 
2 dried red chilli
Oil - 2 tsp (refined coconut oil)

Method

Heat both oil add mustard seeds, jeera and urad dal allow it to crackle. Then add red chillies and curry leaves. Bring the stove to medium-low flame and start roasting the groundnuts and keep stirring continuously to avoid it from burning, it should take 2 minutes to roast well, now add the grated coconut and roast it until a nice aroma comes should take 2 minutes. Now add the cooled rice and mix well. Serve with chips, applam or potato masala
