Malabar coconut rice/ Thenga choru





My grandmother used to cook this with great taste I prepared it 2 to 3 time but never reached her taste. I think more than ingredient she is adding love and care. She prepare spicy sardine fry for this and fish curry. I really miss that hot coconut rice and fish.
