In India, coconut rice is made with coconut flakes or with grated or desiccated/dry coconut). One way to make this dish is to make the rice separately (preferably using a rice variety which is light and fluffy when cooked) and then mixing it with the coconut mixture (coconut flakes toasted in sesame/coconut oil and spiced with paprika, nuts, curry powder/leaves and other spices).




  1. Heat the oil with the mustard seeds in a covered sauté pan.
  2. When the mustard seeds have finished popping, add everything but the rice, and lightly toast in the oil until golden.
  3. Add the seasonings to the cooked rice, mix well, and serve.
