COCONUT RICE / THENGAAI SATHAM RECIPE


COCONUT RICE / THENGAAI SATHAM RECIPE

Variety rice is very common south indian houses. For lunch boxes variety rice are perfect to pack.

Variety rice is nothing but the mixed rice, we can make so many rice varieties like lemon rice, coconut rice, tamarind rice etc., even for some poojas like aadi perukku, purattaasi Saturday, and for the functions like baby shower we make variety rice.

COCONUT RICE / THENGAAI SATHAM RECIPE

AUTHOR: KUZHALIS SAMAIYALARAI
RECIPE TYPE: MAIN
CUISINE: SOUTH INDIAN
SERVES: 2 PERSONS

INGREDIENTS:
                                    1 cup cooked rice
                                    ½ cup grated coconut
                                    Salt to taste
                                    1 teaspoon coconut oil(optional)
                        To temper:
                                    1 tablespoon oil
                                    1 teaspoon mustard seeds
                                    1 red chillies
                                    1 green chilli
                                    1 tablespoon urad dhal
                                    1 ½ tablespoon channa dhal
                                    3 to 5 cashew nuts
                                    ½ teaspoon asafetida
                                    Few curry leaves
                                   
PREPARATION:
Cook the rice fluffy. Mix little oil and let it cool down completely.
Grate the coconut and keep it ready.
Slit the green chillies and break the red chillies and set aside.
Chop the cashew nuts into small pieces and set aside.

METHOD:
In a pan add oil and let it heat. Then add the mustard seeds, and wait till it splutters.
Then add  urad dhal and channa dhal and sauté. Add the green chillies, red chillies and curry leaves, saute well.
Then add cashews ,asafoetida and sauté for few seconds.
Then add the grated coconut and required salt sauté well for 1 minute. Just sauté till the coconut becomes hot; no need to stir till the moisture goes off.
Mix the prepared coconut mixture with the cooled rice and mix well.
Finally add a teaspoon of coconut oil and mix.
Serve hot!!!

NOTES:
  • Don’t cook the rice till mushy, it should be fluffy.
  • Adjust the spiciness by adding one more red chilli or green chilli.
  • I have added lot of dhal as I like them much, if you don’t like, you can reduce the amount of dhals.
  • If you have the rice immediately, the dhals will be so crunchy, so leave the rice for some time, and then serve. So the dhals will become soft in the mean time.
  • As we have used coconut, this rice will be good for short time, so refrigerate if, you prepare long time before and reheat while serving.
  • Adding coconut oil at the end will give very nice flavour to the rice.
