For cooking rice:

  1. Cook the rice with water and cooking oil (1 tsp) with vent weight for 15 minutes at high flame (I have used 5 ½ litre aluminium cooker and cooked for 3 whistles). The cooked rice should be separate and not mushy.

For preparing coconut rice:

  1. Roast the mustard seeds with the coconut oil until it crackles in a pan over medium flame.
  2. Add the urad dal, cashew nuts, groundnuts/peanuts, green chillies, red chillies, hing powder and curry leaves to it. Roast it for 2-3 minutes at medium flame.
  3. Add the grated coconut to it. Roast it (if it is a dry coconut, roast it for just 15 seconds at medium flame. If it is a freshly grated coconut, roast it for 1-2 minutes at medium flame. The colour of the grated coconut should not turn brown and it should be white. Stop roasting when you find it starts changing from white colour). Turn off the flame. The mixture is ready.
  4. Add the mixture to the cooked rice and mix it well. Enjoy with Avial. You may like our lemon rice and tamarind rice (instant in less than 10 minutes)
