Coconut Rice

Coconut Rice a well known rice dish that most of us prepare. I would like to write about my version of coconut rice. It’s a quick dish and is so satisfying in taste. I usually prepare this when I am in a hurry and have no veggies at home.


  • 2 cups Cooked Rice
  • 1 cup grated Coconut, fresh or dry
  • A small Onion, finely chopped
  • 1 or 2 Green Chilies, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp Red Chili Powder
  • Few Curry Leaves
  • A pinch of Turmeric
  • Few Cashews
  • ½ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 2 tsp Oil
  • Salt to taste


Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds + onion + green chilies + cashews + curry leaves and sauté well for some time until onions become soft.

Then add coconut and fry well for some time. And then add rice + turmeric and mix well to make sure there are no lumps. Add salt and red chili powder and mix well. Cover and keep the rice on low flame for 5 minutes and turn off the flame.

Great tasting coconut rice is ready!! Enjoy with some papads or plain yogurt.
