This is the way I have prepared my rice and peas for many years. I used pure cream coconut to replace the milk and added a teaspoon of salt, the seasoning was perfect for our taste. Served with sweet potatoes and jerk pork! A very tasty dinner!

We enjoyed this dish very much, thanks for sharing Superwomenblack. I made my own coconut milk, and added 1 1/2 scotch bonnet peppers, which I finely minced and 1 tsp sea salt. It was so delicious, that we had the leftovers with breakfast the next day.
