Coconut Rice

Coconut rice is very simple and quick to make. Also, it is great on the taste buds. I remember asking my mom to make this all the time when I was in college.

Rice - 1 cup
Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
Red chili - 3
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Broken urud dal - 1/4 tsp
Cashew nuts - 4 or 5
Oil - 1 tbsp
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida - a pinch
Coriander - few sprigs
Salt to taste

1. Cook the rice in 2 cups of water, ensuring the grains do not stick to each other. Allow to come to room temperature.
2. Heat oil in a pan and pop mustard seeds. Add broken red chillies, urud dal and broken cashew nuts. Fry till the cashew has attained a golden hue.
3. Add the coconut and fry till it is slightly browned.
4. Add the cooked rice, salt, sugar and asafoetida. Mix well and garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
