Check out this super easy coconut-mint rice. It qualifies for the lunch box as well.
Fresh Coconut, shredded 1 cup + more if preferred
Sona Masoori Rice 2 cups
Salt and Green Chilies as needed
Mint leaves 1/2 cup or more
Sesame Seeds 1 Tbsp (Optional)
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Lime/Lemon Juice 1 Tbsp or as needed
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp, Peanuts few, cashews few, Asafotida 2 pinches, Curry leaves few)
Method Of Preparation -
Cook rice separately and spread out the rice in a wide pan/tray to let the rice cool a little.
Grind together coconut, mint leaves, sesame seeds, salt and green chilies into a fine paste.
In a pan, heat oil and add the rest of the seasoning ingredients. After the dals and nuts are evenly browned, add the coconut paste and saute for a minute (just to warm the coconut a little). Remove from heat.
Mix in the coconut and seasoning mixture into the rice and mix well. Squeeze in lemon/lime juice as needed.
Adjust the flavors and the coconut-mint rice is ready to be served.
