Coconut Rice ~ Easy Lunch Box Recipe !

    Today Day 2 of the Blogging Marathon Edition # 13 under the theme, "Easy kids lunch box recipe featuring Rice". Today's easy lunch box recipe - Coconut Rice. Just like me Sanjay too love coconut rice more. This time i made this rice with little variation by adding some roasted ground dal powder which was adapted from Vardhini's Coconut Sevai recipe. Thanks dear for the recipe , really addition of podi to the coconut rice gives lots of flavor n mild crunchy taste. We loved it. This coconut rice can be done within 10 minutes if u have cooked rice in hand. Very simple and delicious recipe. The recipe as follows...


Ingredients
  1. Cooked Rice    1 and 1/2 cup
  2. Coconut(fresh)     1/4 cup (shredded)
  3. Salt   to taste
  4. Cilantro   few finely chopped

  3. Chana dal   1/2 tsp
  4. Urad  dal   1/2 tsp
  5. Peanut    1 tbsp
  6. Curry leaves   few
Method
  • First roast the ingredients under the heading " to toast n grind" in oil till light golden brown and cool it ...then grind it to a fine coarse powder and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan, then add the tempering ingredients one by one and fry the dal till it turns light golden brown and add shredded coconut n enough salt .
  • Then roast the coconut for 1-2 minutes or until it turns light brown n  flavor comes.
  • Now add the cooked rice n ground dal powder and mix everything well and stir fry for a minute.
