Coconut Rice

There are different ways of making coconut rice and this is one of the easiest version of making it. My friend Nidhu introduced this wonderful recipe to me. I heard at least 20-30 times, over phone, "Aparna, I feel lazy today. So I will prepare coconut rice for dinner". I should say that it is really contagious and I too got addicted to the same habit - when lazy, just go for coconut rice. It is easy and tasty!!! But, I should really thank her, because now me and my hubby really loves it.


Ingredients:
Jeera Rice or White Rice : 1 1/2 cup
Coconut Milk : 1/2 cup
Water : 2 1/2 cup
Coconut Oil : 1 1/2 table spoon
Green Chilly : 2 nos
Ginger : 1 inch
Curry Leaves : 1 sprig
Coriander Leaves : 2 sprigs
Salt : To taste

Preparation:
  1. Wash, clean and dry the rice using a colander.
  2. Grind green chilly, ginger, curry leaves and coriander leaves and make a paste and keep aside.
  3. Turn on the rice cooker and add the oil.
  4. Once oil is heated, add the grinded paste and stir well for 5-10 seconds.
  5. Add the dried rice and stir well for around 1 minute.
  6. Add the water, coconut milk and salt.
  7. Close the cooker and start cooking till the rice is cooked.
  8. It will take only 10-12 minutes for the rice to be ready.
  9. This will be enough to serve 2-3 people.
You can have it with fried items, dry masalas, any varutharacha curry or salads.
