Another popular traditional rice preparation from karnataka! this is one version of the recipe made using powdered spices. Alternatively, it can also be made by processing the ingredients into a gravy called gojju and then mixing it with cooked rice.

The aroma of coconut is distinct and lovely from this rice. Love the mildly flavored spice of malgapadi powder and kashmiri red chillies. Great rice.
