Coconut rice is my husband's favorite rice dish. This is very easy to make one pot meal that can be done in 15 mins if your cooked rice are ready. This recipe is my husband grand ma's recipe. I really love this rice because of the addition of secret ingredient (moong dal) which makes this rice protein rich and colorful. Here I used coconut oil for tempering the spices, so it makes the rice more flavorful. Best accompaniment for this  coconut rice are colocasia roast or potato roast or papad (appalam). I had it with cauliflower fry
