How to make Coconut Rice

  1. Cook the rice such that each grain is separate, you can use leftover rice also.
  2. Heat oil in the pan and pop the mustard seeds.
  3. Add the urad dal, chana dal and cashew nuts and fry for few minutes on a low flame till it turns golden brown.
  4. Add the chilies, curry leaves & asaefoetida.
  5. Add the grated coconut and roast for a few minutes till its gets dry and starts getting a slight color change. Do not let it change color completely.
  6. Add required salt and cooked rice.

My Tip:

Instead of rice, substitute with sewai, rahi sewai, or sewaiya to make coconut sewai.
