A nice rice dish. Served it with Recipe #119300 - it would go well with many fruity, spicy chicken dishes. I used regular long grain white rice and sweetened dried coconut and it tasted just fine. I also sauteed the green onions along with the yellow onions. Would also taste good with currants or other dried fruits added in. Thanks for posting.
