I believe this is the easiest eatery that can be made. Just note down the below procedure.
Soak rice in water in a vessel and keep it aside. Grind grated coconut with some water in a mixer jar. Put this grinded mixture into a strainer and separate the coconut milk by collecting it into a vessel. Keep aside for time being.
Heat ghee and fry jeera, cashew, almond, raisins and cardamom. Carry on until the cashew turns golden brown in color.
Now remove the soaked rice out of the water and add it into the cooking pan for frying but do not add water. Continue frying till you find the rice also turning into golden brown color.
Add the extracted coconut milk to the rice. Add salt according to your taste and cook the rice.
This rice is best as on its own. Optionally you can serve this rice with tomato ketchup.
