Kobbari Annam (Coconut Rice)

Kobbari annam (coconut rice) is a simple and easy rice dish to prepare. I remember that amma used to prepare this rice, the next day after a festival (we break coconut on the day of festival). I prefer using fresh coconut than frozen coconut. It doesn’t need any side dish to go with it as this rice itself is so flavorful.
