Garlic rice recipe, using Brown rice

Garlic rice recipe with video and step by step pictures

Garlic rice recipe, a very simple garlic flavored rice made using Brown Sona masoori rice, healthy lunch box recipes. Recently we have switched to brown rice. Actually i tried many varieties of brown rice but somehow not satisfied with any thing. I picked the Brown Sona masoori rice in Sri Murugan stores Singapore and finally completely satisfied with the rice. And the most gratifying thing is kids too started eating this without any fuss. So we almost switched to brown sona masoori rice. This rice goes well with rasam, sambar and curd rice too. Today i wanted to try this brown rice with variety rice and it tasted so yum. We couldn't make out the taste difference too.

Notes:
  1. Instead of fresh coconut you can add kopra | dry coconut.
  2. Chana can be replaced with peanuts, in that case, just saute raw peanuts in oil after adding mustard and curry leaves.
  3. You can use basmati rice or normal white rice too. 
  4. Garlic rice tastes best for lunch box too.
