Indonesian Coconut Rice

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Mindelicious

Yet another coconut rice; however, this one is a bit different and the flavors are surprising to the tastebuds. You can put this in a rice mold, pop it out, and top with peanuts and/or toasted coconut. Serve alongside stirfried veggies. From Vegan Fire & Spice, by Robin Robertson

I loved this dish. It was very good with Indonesian Meatballs & Indonesian Fried Chicken. It was easy to make. Thank you for the excellent recipe Mindelicious.
