I hate variety rice to the core, right from my childhood. If my mom packs me any variety rice other than tomato rice and curd rice for lunch, I come home in the evening without even tasting a spoon of it. I am so much adamant on this. Even now, i hate tamarind rice, lemon rice and this coconut rice to the core! Then if you ask me, why i am posting the dish i hate the most, then its because now i started to feel my mother feelings, when my son come home without eating few food which he do not like. and the next reason is my mom makes this coconut rice interesting by adding appalam to it. so i just want to share it here, So you could try and make the kids eat coconut rice!
