I tried making this dish...It was a mess from the start. There are definately some steps missing. I started by cooking the beans on low heat with the coconut milk and it was all downhill from there. The milk was gone within a half an hour and then I was thinking "How is this suppose to cook rice if you dont add anymore liquid to the recipe?" So basicly what Im trying to say is...this recipe definately needs some tweeking, and until then.... dont try it!

this recipe worked after changes. 1 1/4 cups dry beans are 2 coconut milk cans when soaked overnight, then i added 1 coconut milk can ( 13.8 fl oz.), and 2 1/2 of those cans water, add the ice in the end, cover and cook for 25 minuyes or till dry. good luck. a pinch of cinnamon and salt will make it tastier.
