Coconut Rice

Rice - 1 cup (I used basmati rice)
Grated coconut - 1/2 or 3/4 cup
Urad Dal - 1/2 tsp
Channa Dal - 1/2 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Peanut - few
Cashew nut - few
Curry leaves - 1 twig
Salt & Oil as required

Cook rice and keep aside.
Heat oil in a vessel, add mustard seeds and as they splutter add urad dal, channa dal, peanut and cashewnuts allow them to turn red. Add the red chilly, curry leaves and asafoetida and roast for a few secs. Add grated coconut and salt combine and saute for 2-3 mts on low flame. Then add the cooked rice and combine well.

You can have this with mint chutney or any chutney, pickle or papad
