You know those weird cravings you get randomly. Yeah, well, I had one of them recently..craving to eat coconut rice (!?). I know, beyond weird but hey, we are all human!
Coconut rice is a common South Indian Dish hence why you don’t see it in my kitchen often or at all (for those of you just tuning in, I am north Indian). Follow my steps below to whip up some for yourself. Finger-lickin good.
- Cook desired amount of white rice and cool completely.
- Heat ghee or oil in a pan, add cumin, mustard, dals and cashews. When the dal turns golden, add ginger, green chili, curry leaves and red chili. Sprinkle hing (Asafoetida).
- Add coconut, rice and salt. Off the heat. Stir everything well.
- Serve coconut rice with a simple curry or yogurt.
