COCONUT RICE RECIPE | KOBBARI ANNAM

Coconut Rice is an easy and flavourful rice made with freshly grated coconut and with few spices. It is one of the most basic South Indian recipes which we make for festivals and special occasions.

In other languages, it’s known as kobbari Annam or nariyal chawal. This is an easy yet tasty recipe to pack in a child’s lunch box. There are two ways to make this rice: one is to temper all of the spices with freshly grated coconut before combining them with the pre-cooked rice, and the other is to make a one-pot meal by cooking the rice, spices, and coconut milk together. You can find that COCONUT MILK PULAO recipe here.

This rice can be eaten with any curry, but we typically serve it with POTATO FRY or ALOO MATAR CURRY or with CAULIFLOWER POTATO FRY
