      I've been saving this recipe for a long time since I love the flavor of coconut milk. The recipe turned out fine...light and fluffy yellow rice. But I was expecting a lot more coconut milk flavor and even the cinnamon was barely perceptible. Maybe it's because I used light coconut milk...but I was expecting more from this recipe. Not bad, just nothing to make it memorable.

      This was yummy. We used lite coconut milk and I added hot pepper flakes instead of the cinnamon and raisins. The rice was sweet and hot at the same time.
