Narali Bath(Sweet Coconut Rice)



I wish coconut was good for health! I would add it generously to all my dishes :) I made this rice today to send it to Tongueticklers and FIC white event hosted by kitchen flavours.

Ingredients:
Basmathi Rice-1/2 cup
Sugar-1/3 cup
Cloves-2
Ghee-1 tbsp
Chopped almonds-4
Saffron-a few strands
Cardamom-a pinch
Coconut-1/3 cup
Condensed milk(optional)-1 tbsp


Method:
Soak rice in water for 15 minutes.
Heat ghee. Roast almonds and set aside.
In the same pan, add rinsed rice and fry for a minute. add 1 cup of water, cardamom, coconut, saffron, cloves and bring the mixture to a boil. Simmer and cover with a lid and cook till the rice is 90% done(approximately 10 minutes). Add sugar and condensed milk and mix everything well and cook for another 2 minutes. Garnish with roasted nuts.

Note:Condensed milk can be replaced with regular milk for a lighter version of this rice.

  12. Who can resist anything with coconut and that too a sweet dish. Looks really good. Coconut I bet when used in moderation is not all bad. Jury is still out on its ill effects. I tend to give it the benefit of doubt :)
