i have already shared the easy and simple lemon rice or chitranna recipe which is typically made from left-over rice for morning breakfast. but this recipe of masala chitranna recipe is very unique and has more spice compared to former. this dish is generally made as one of the appetising dishes during the celebration or any occasion feast. also while serving in the banana leaves, it has a dedicated place and it should be placed at the bottom left of banana leaf. also, the main difference between the udupi chitranna and normal chitranna is the usage of grounded masala prepared from mustard seeds, fresh coconut and red chilli. further, the masala is coarsely grounded with no water and not converted to a coarse paste. it is then roughly mixed with freshly cooked or leftover rice before serving it freshly.

while the masala chitranna recipe can be prepared within minutes, yet some tips and recommendation while preparing it. firstly, this recipe is generally prepared with fresh and moist rice as compared to the simple lemon rice. having said that, you can experiment with the left-over rice and sprinkle some water while cooking. secondly, i have used desiccated coconut (soaked in water for 5 minutes) as i did not have access to fresh coconut in the first place. i would heavily recommend using freshly grated coconut if it is available for you. lastly, as we are using coconut the rice may turn stale quickly and hence should be consumed quickly once prepared. you can extend its life by refrigerating it in an airtight container.
