Starting from my school days, till date this is my all time favourite dish to carry for lunch. But my husband doesn't like this much, hence I stopped preparing this. This time he himself asked me to prepare this and pack it for lunch. Happily I prepared with the same side dish which I used to carry during my school days. When I was doing my 10th grade, i used to leave home at 6 in the morning and mom used to pack my breakfast, lunch and send it to me through my junior friends. Breakfast though will get over during class hours itself. And only we will have our lunch alone in a formal manner. Like a galaxy, each tiffin box will be revolving around the people, no one will have their own box alone. It will be huge fun to sit, chitchat, complain about teachers,friends....so much of fun. Its always good to remember those precious school days.
Come back from your sweet memorable school days and have look at my coconut rice
Coconut Scrapped - 1 cup
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Urad dhal - 1 tsp
Bengal Gram dhal - 1 tsp
Aesfoetida - 1 pinch
Green Chillies - 4
Red Chillies - 4
Scrap the coconut using the scrapper. I have seen people, who feel lazy to scrap, cut the coconut and grind it dry in a mixer. This way if you do, the taste wont be good.
In a kadai, add 1 tsp of oil. Add the Mustard seeds, Urad dhal, Bengal Gram dhal, Aesfoetida.
Once the dhal are fried enough, add the green chillies and red chillies.
Switch off the stove and add the coconut. Don't fry the coconut as it may start leaving oil.
Cook the rice and cool it in a big vessel. Add coconut seasoning to the rice and mix by adding salt.
I love having it with potato fry. I have taste few more versions of coconut rice, in which they use Cinnamon and cloves. But I never like those ones. This is so simple to make and delicious to have.
This is my Favourite and am dedicating this to me alone ;)
