Coconut rice/ Thengai Sadam

Coconut rice is another minimal ingredients recipe..If u have left over rice, coconut rice can be done in few minutes..Kids will love this coz its not spicy, cocnut gives sweetness to the rice and absolutely flavourful...I as a kid loved to have thengai sadam. The only downside is u have to prepare it and finish it at the lunch table...Not good for storing..
