Coconut Rice Recipe

As a kid, I bet everyone would have loved this coconut rice. But after you have reached a certain age, we tend to avoid this recipe as it contributes more cholesterol. But I think a treat now and then is acceptable. Life is full of changes. The things we loved when were kids becomes a second or last choice when we grow up. Not only types of food, this quality prevails in many things. Why is it so? Why do we have to change ourselves to suite the society? Can't we still be like kids, with no responsibilities, have fun and playing most of the time? I know it is not possible but why? Why? Why?

Coconut rice recipe

Coconut Rice is a delicacy. No one can deny it. It has a unique flavor that fills your kitchen pulling your husband and kids to the kitchen to take a peek. Here is the recipe for you to try out and win the super chef title!

I am sending this lovely recipe to Ramki's Recipe for rest of us event and FIC- White started by dear Harini and guest host this month by Kitchen flavours.


1 cup of Basmati Rice (you can also use the normal white rice)
1/2 cup of coconut (You can use the freshly grated or the coconut powder too)
2 tsp of Coconut Oil ( you can also substitute this with Olive/Canola/Vegetable oil)
1/2 tbspn of coconut milk OR 1 tsp of sugar
2-3 green chillies, chopped
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp channa dal
1 tsp urad dal
Few Cashews or groundnuts (your choice, you can omit this too)
Salt to taste
Few curry leaves
Few chopped cilantro

Coconut Rice


In a pan, add the oil. Add mustard seeds, when it pops, add the cumin seeds and curry leaves.

Now add the channa dal and urad dal. Saute.

Add the Green chillies and nuts. If the nuts are not previously fried. Do fry them at this point.

Add the grated coconut and mix well.

Add salt and coconut milk or 1 tsp of sugar and mix well. If you are adding the coconut milk, you need not add sugar as it is sweet by itself. This gives the unique flavor to this rice variety.

Mix them well and cook it for a minute.

Meanwhile, cook the Basmati rice and allow it to cool for 5 min.

Mix the rice with this coconut mixture and Ta-da! Your coconut rice is ready. This is a very easy recipe and goes well with Papad,chips or Potato curry. YUM!


AM drooling over the coconut rice, with appalams its definitely a divine..

This looks incredible! I was just remarking to someone how much I love coconut milk (and coconut everything).
