    • Now add soaked chana dal and urad dal. Make sure you drain the water beforehand.
    • Saute for 2-3 minutes on medium flame.
    • Add 10-12 cashews in the Kadai and saute them until golden in colour.
    • At this point, lower the gas flame and add grated coconut into the Kadai.
    • Saute this mixture for another few minutes.
    • Once the raw smell of coconut goes away, you need to add cooked rice into it.
    • Add salt according to your taste.
    • Now mix the rice gently and make sure the rice does not break while mixing.
    • Put on the lid of the Kadai and cook the rice for 2-3 minutes on low-medium flame. This will ensure that the rice absorbs the coconut flavour quite well.

    • You can serve the coconut rice with chutney, curry or yogurt.
  • It is a South-Indian recipe and is probably one of the best flavoured rice recipes.
