Coconut Rice

Coconut rice is a flavorful rice which is made especially for the baby shower and Chitra pournami day(the full moon day in the month of April).
In our tradition for baby shower we make 5 or 7 types of variety rice along with chutney and pappad, one among is coconut rice.
I have already posted the  Variety Rice Thali in Blogging marathon which we make it for Chitra Pournami day and even for the baby shower also same type of rice varities with little more sides and sweets.Here is the recipe.........................
