    beckas's Note:

    This rice has a mild coconut flavor. I served it with Macadamia Nut Chicken Breasts #30291 and a Thai red curry sauce. It was a perfect combination.

      This was AWESOME!! Loved this special side dish, coconut milky flavor, the toasted coconut made this recipe outstanding. Served this with grilled fresh pineapple and grilled ham steaks. A meal to remember. Thank You!

      This is a nice, unique side dish and very easy to prepare. I think next time (there will definitely be a next time!) I may use half coconut milk and half water as the flavor stood out a bit more than I had anticipated, even with light coconut milk. I tossed some golden raisins in at the end for added color and texture. My 2 yr old, in particular, really liked it. I would like to try it with some curried chicken but was needing a vegetarian dinner tonite so paired it with Sue L's "I Can't Wait for Chole" and it worked well. Will be making it again. Thanks!
