Coconut rice recipe is a south Indian recipe & very simple & easy to make. I had it once in one of my friend's home & it was so delicious dat I couldn't stop myself asking the recipe.... So I took the recipe from her & I made it . It came out soo delicious that my husband also loved it. I did a small variation with the rice by adding 2-3 cloves of garlic & redchillies to enhance the flavor of rice..This is a very special kind of rice.I m making this for 3rd time now. Hope u all will like this too.So here is the recipe.
Cooked rice 1 ½ cups
Garlic- 3-4 cloves peeled
Grated coconut -2-3 tblsp
Dry red chillies- 2-3 ( I don’t like much spice so I used less u can add according to your taste)
Refined oil/ coconut oil- 1tblsp (tempering in coconut oil adds agr8 flavour to this rice)
Peanuts- a handful
Curry leaves- a few
