Recipe by GiddyUpGo

This recipe is from week nine of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every country on Earth, and Angola is my ninth stop. This is an Angolan side dish made from rice, coconut milk and papayas.

This rice was amazing! The flavours were so delicate but the little bursts of papaya were so great. I served this with your recipe #466888 made for My Food Odyssey.
