Coconut Rice

1 cup of cooked rice
1/2 cup grated coconut
1 finely chopped green chilli
1 tsp finely chopped ginger
2 dry red chillies
1/2 tsp mustard seed
1/2 tsp urad dal
1/2 tsp channa dal
1 tsp of oil
A pinch of salt to taste
A pinch of sugar to taste
A pinch of hing (asafoetida)
1tsp chopped coriander & curry leaves
Roasted cashews

For seasoning, heat a tsp of oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. Once the seeds splutter, add the red chillies, urad & channa dal, chopped ginger, chillies, curry leaves and finally add hing. Add the grated coconut and saute this for 3 - 4 minutes. Add this to the cooked rice. Add salt & sugar and mix well. Garnish with cashews & coriander and serve hot. This recipe serves 2 people.

That was easy ... Wasn't it !!!?!!!

Tips: Nothing can go wrong with this. Always cool the rice before you mix. Make sure the rice is not overcooked and does not stick.
