Coconut Rice / Thengai Sadam / Kobbari Annam

This is one of the South Indian's favorite Rice delicacy.

Coconut rice is a quick fix mix rice varieties. This can be put together very fast if all the ingredients are ready. Coconut rice is very important rice in all occasions in South India.

I always try to use the fresh coconut for making this rice, It makes a huge difference than making it with the frozen stuff. This is a very nice recipe for left over rice, they taste very good.

Ingredients :

Rice - 1 cup(cooked)
Fresh grated coconut - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 tablespoon
Green Chillies - 3
Coriander leaves - few
Curry leaves - few
Salt as required

For tempering:
Mustered seeds - 1 teaspoon
Urad Dal - 1 1/2 teaspoon
Channa Dal - 1 1/2 teaspoon
Red chillies - 1
Cashews - few(Optional)

Procedure :

Cook the rice with little salt. Make it to cool completely. Spread it on a sheet pan to separate the grains. Now add the ghee to the rice and mix it well.

Heat oil in a pan. Fry the cashews till golden brown and remove and keep it aside. In the rest of the oil add the mustered seeds and let it splutter. Then add the dals and red chillies. Fry them until light golden brown.

Now add the slit green chillies and curry leaves, fry for few seconds. Now add the coconut and add some salt. Fry the coconut only for few seconds. Immediately remove from fire and mix it with the rice. Now add the coriander leaves and fried cashews and toss it with the rice.
