Narali bhaat or Sweet coconut rice pudding is a rice dish from the western Indian state of Maharashtra.
It is known as Narali Bhat in Marathi as 'Naral = Coconut' and 'bhat = rice'.
Narali bhat is made on 'Narali Pournima' day, a 'Coconut festival day' which falls on a full moon day in the rainy season, mostly in August.
It is a festival for the Koli (fishermen) of the western Indian coast who worship the sea on that day as the sea provides them their livelihood.
You can use long grained basmati rice or any other rice of your choice. Basmati rice adds a flavor of it's own to this rice.
Traditionally, this rice is made with jaggery(brown sugar). You may substitute jaggery with sugar if you wish. I always prefer to make it with jaggery. Jaggery adds it's own flavor and color to the dish.
Jaggery is healthier than sugar and gives a wonderful taste as well as color.
This recipe uses grated fresh coconut. If fresh coconut is not available, you may use desiccated coconut.
If Soak it in a little warm water 10-15 minutes before using.
