  • Allow it cool and grind the mixture coarsely in a mixie or a food processor and keep it aside.
  • Heat the remaining oil in the same kadai/wok, when hot add Mustard seeds and urad dal and allow it to splutter. And then add curry leaves to it. 
  • Now add coconut garlic mixture and salt to it and saute for 2 minutes. Then add the rice to it and mix well, so that rice and garlic mixture combine together.

 Garlic Rice
  • If you don't have any cooked or leftover rice.. cook them and allow it to cool and proceed the recipe. Do not use the hot rice for this recipe.
  • If the garlic cloves are big then reduce it to 5.
  • If you feel spicy, you can reduce the chillies too.
  • you can substitute dry coconut powder in the place of fresh coconut. 
  • Also you can prepare the coconut garlic mixture in advance and store it in a container in the fridge. Whenever you have any leftover rice, you can prepare this garlic rice easily.
