Rice preparations that highlight a single ingredient like Lemon Rice , Tamarind Rice , Raw Mango Rice or Coconut Rice are more popular in south India than pulaos.

Each of these has a unique flavour, which sets it apart from other rice preparations. Here, in this delectable Coconut Rice recipe, you will be able to savour the satiating texture and nutty flavour of coconut, perked up with a traditional tempering of mustard seeds, dals, etc.

While sesame can be omitted from the recipe, adding it accentuates the flavour and aroma of the Coconut Rice making it all the more enjoyable.

The crunch of roasted cashews is another aspect to look forward to in every mouthful of this delicious rice.
