How to make Coconut Kuska

  1. Wash and cook rice with required amount of water , when rice is cooked transfer it to a wide plate , add 1 tsp oil and plough it with fork ( this is done to ensure the rice does not turn mushy and also to cool down completely).
  2. Chop onions,coriander leaves and green chillies.
  3. In a small pan dry roast cinnamon , cloves till aroma comes .Remove from flame and grind them to fine powder.
  4. Heat oil in wide kadai followed by mustard , cumin and when cumin stars spluttering add green chillies and fry till it changes colour.
  5. Then add onions , curry leaves and fry till golden brown.Add powdered cinnamon,cloves to the kadai and saute for a minute.
  6. If you are adding egg , add at this stage and fry till the eggs form small balls and not stick to each other and also to the kadai.
  7. Add coconut,coriander leaves , salt and mix well until all the ingredients incorporate with each other. Finally add boiled rice and mix well.
  8. Remove from flame and serve hot with side dish of your choice.

My Tip:

I used normal rice you can use basmathi rice too. Adding egg is purely optional , you can even skip it. I used coconut oil you can replace with ghee too.
