  • Salt – 02 tsp
  • Water – 03/04 cups


  • Wash rice well and put them into your cooking pot.

  • Meanwhile, mix salt with coconut milk.
  • Once rice is cooked well add coconut milk into this.
  • Mix coconut milk with rice and cook this on medium heat.
  • Stir this constantly until we get this out from fire.
  • When rice absorbed all coconut milk and starts sticking together switch off the flame.
  • Transfer this into a wooden board or a tray and level the surface.
