Kai-Sasuve Chitranna / Coconut mustard Rice
I would like to wish all a very Happy Belated Ugadi Wishes. I wanted to post this last week on Ugadi but somehow couldn't. So here it is a Rice item which is very different from the usual rice item. I usually do this on festivals and when I have fresh coconut, otherwise it doesn't taste that good. The main ingredients in this is Mustard and coconut other than Rice. Its simple and it dosent need any raita to the side.
1tsp Mustard seeds
1cup Freshly grated coconut
1tsp Red chilli powder(or 6-8 Red Chilli)
salt to taste
1/2tsp Musatrd seeds
1/2tsp Urad dal
1/4tsp turmeric powder
5-6 curry leaves
First grind mustard seeds, coconut, red chilly/chilly powder, jaggery, salt. If needed add few spoons at a time water, otherwise try to grind it without. Once you grind it to a paste, prepare tempering with oil, mustard seeds, urad dal, peanut, turmeric powder,hing and curry leaves. Add the paste and saute it for couple of mintues in low flame. If you have added water while grinding then saute it a little more otherwise 3-4 mintues should be fine. Add this mixture to the cooled rice and mix well. Serve warm.
