Coconut rice | Thenga sadam | Coconut pilav


This is one quick and easy rice dish to use up left over rice.



A few things before we start:
  • You can use left over rice or freshly cooked rice. 
  • Dessicated coconut can be used; however, the taste is some what compromised.
  • Add some dried red chillies together with whole spices if you like the heat.
