Coconut Rice

One of my favorites.  And the easiest to make. The leftover rice can be used to make this "jhatpat" dish.

Boiled rice (white)- 1 cup
Mustard Seeds- 1tsp
Jeera (Cumin)- 1 tsp
Green Chilly - 3-4
Curry Leaves- 12
Chana Dal- 1tsp
Urad Dal- 1tsp
Salt to Taste
Coconut- 1/2 cup  (Scraped)
Oil- 1 tbsp
Coriander Leaves

1. Mix salt with rice and keep aside.
2. In a pan add oil followed by chana dal, urad dal, mustard. Once the seeds start spluttering and the dal's turn slightly brown add cumin, green chilies and curry leaves.
3. Add the salt mixed rice from Step 1 and mix well.
4. Garnish with coconut and coriander leaves.
