Narali Bath(Sweet Coconut Rice)
I wish coconut was good for health! I would add it generously to all my dishes :) I made this rice today to send it to Tongueticklers and FIC white event hosted by kitchen flavours.
Basmathi Rice-1/2 cup
Saffron-a few strands
Condensed milk(optional)-1 tbsp
Soak rice in water for 15 minutes.
Heat ghee. Roast almonds and set aside.
In the same pan, add rinsed rice and fry for a minute. add 1 cup of water, cardamom, coconut, saffron, cloves and bring the mixture to a boil. Simmer and cover with a lid and cook till the rice is 90% done(approximately 10 minutes). Add sugar and condensed milk and mix everything well and cook for another 2 minutes. Garnish with roasted nuts.
Note:Condensed milk can be replaced with regular milk for a lighter version of this rice.
