Thengai Podi Sadham / Coconut Powder Rice

I think each one has their own version of coconut rice but this thengai podi satham is little different from our usual coconut rice. This recipe was purely on a hear say from a friend and it turned out gud so thought to jot it down before I forget. I am not a fan of variety rice but still this comes to our rescue when there is less time.Ammas version of coconut rice is already posted.
