Very easy and good. I actually used coconut that I had toasted with brown sugar for a dessert recipe I made previously and it was great in the recipe.
This rice was a huge hit with everyone at a Teacher Appreciation Luncheon and my husband's office party. I measured and chopped all the ingredients ahead of time and placed in baggies. The next day, I used an electric skillet to saute the ingredients in front of the guests and the smell was so appetizing, they could not wait to try it.
This was delicious. I had a huge party and multiplied the recipe many times in order to feed everyone. I made it ahead of time, and stir fried it to heat it up. It was still wonderful. The fruit and coconut was exceptional in the rice! Thanks!
