Coconut Rice / Thengai Saadam
Aromatic rice specked with coconut scrapings and subtly flavoured with a hint of red chilli and curry leaves... I am starting to give a "5 STAR" treatment for this simple rice with all this fancy english descriptive words....
This is a simple rice recipe which is quick and easy to dish up and carries off most of the authentic side dishes well.
