Coconut Rice

Thengai Sadam - definately not one of my favorites, but yeah my hubby's loves it. Very simple and easy to make. Once all the ingredients are availabale the dish can be made in a jiffy. Full of carbs, this dish is a definite no if you are a diet freak.

Grated coconut - 1 cup
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tbsp
Urad Dal - 2 tbsp
Asafoetida - 1/4 tbsp
Green Chilies - 3 medium sized
Curry Leaves - a little
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking

Heat 3 tbsp oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and once they splutter add all the other ingredients. Stir once and switch off the heat before the coconut turns brown.
Mix well with rice and garnish with cashew nuts. Tastes awesome with Aviyal/ More kolambu
