Use long grain Basmati rice to make this coconut rice recipe, the fragrance will be amazing. I have used India Gate Basmati Rice to make this Thengai Paal Sadam.
To get Perfect white Colour coconut milk rice to use the fresh coconut milk and also don't add tomatoes it will change the color of rice.
After the rice is cooked, let it rest for at least 5 minutes before fluffing it with a fork. It will make sure the grains do not break while fluffing it.
Ghee adds a very delicious flavor to the rice, so do not skip it.
Slightly crushing the whole spices before adding them, will make the flavor stand out even more.
