But here to give additional twist , taste and flavour I have added urad dhal to the coconut rice which takes the regular coconut rice to next level. It makes the rice more healthy, tasty and flavourful.

Ok now coming to the side dish for this rice. As it is mild and not spicy one, spicier fry like potato fry or sweet potato/tapioca/arbi fry suits best. Even vatical/vadam/chips also goes very well with this scrumptious rice.

No need to make the colour to change, just to remove the moisture from the coconut we need to sauté.

NOTES:
  • Cook the rice as fluffy, the rice should not be mushy.
  • You can even use basmati rice too.(But pacha arisi tastes good)
  • Adjust the spiciness by adding/reducing the green chillis
  • Adding peanuts and cashews gives nice crunchiness to the rice.
  • Using coconut oil gives nice flavour, any oil can also be used
  • You can even add 1 or 2 broken red chilli too while tempering.
  • Don't mix the coconut mixture in hot rice to avoid the mushy rice.
  • Sauting the coconut gives nice flavour and taste to the coconut rice
  • Don't grind the urad dhal into smooth paste, to avoid sticking with the pan.
  • The urad dhal mixture should be crumble before adding coconut.
  • While grating coconut dont use the brown part to get nice even white coloured coconut rice .
