Nothing will be much easier to prepare than coconut rice...its really a quick, simple n tasty rice with simple ingredients, can prepare them very quickly even u dont have much time to prepare ur lunch, its one of the famous lunchbox menu..most of us would have carried them for our lunch while schooling..i love this rice with fried papads, my most fav one...

2cups Cooked Basmati Rice
1cup Grated coconut (fresh)
1/2tsp Mustard seeds n urad dal
1/4tsp Channa dal
1/4cup Peanuts
2nos Dry red chillies
5nos Curry leaves
1/4tsp Peppercorns( pounded)
Oil+1/2tsp Ghee

Heat oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds, urad dal, peanuts, channa dal, dry red chillies n curry leaves n fry them until they turn brown...add the freshly grated coconut pieces with salt n fry them for a while until they turn stiff n slightly brown...switch off the stove...

Add now the already cooked rice to the fried coconut.. mix well for a while, drizzle the melted ghee n springle the pounded peppercorns...

Serve them with fried papads.. Divine na!!!!!
