Cooked White Rice – 2 cups
Fresh Grated coconut – 1 1/2 cups
Or Frozen coconut
Split channa dhal – 1 tablespoon
Cashew split in half – 2 tablespoon
Dry Red chilly – 2
Mustard seeds – 1 teaspoon
Green curry leaves- handful
Take split channa dhal and Mustard seeds as shown in picture and set aside in a bowl
Set aside cashew halfs and Green curry leaves aside for use later.
Grate fresh coconut about 1 1/2 cups. Grating coconut in India is pretty easy. If you don't get to grate fresh coconut you could use frozen coconut like in the USA. If it's frozen coconut just make sure you thaw the amount of coconut you want to use.
Take a medium size pan and pour 2 tablespoons of oil and add mustard, split channa dhal and red chilly . Add cashew when the other ingredients are roasted.
Take 2 cups of cooked white Rice and set it aside to cool .
Once the ingredients in step 3 are ready you could add Green curry leaves and the grated coconut into the pan. Make sure the mixture is roasted a little bit and then add the necessary salt to the ingredients before you add rice. If you are using frozen coconut then you could defrost and then add it into the pan.
Add the cooked Rice into the above mixture in step 5 and mix well. Severe hot and enjoy.
