Rice Cooked in Coconut-(Wali Wa Nazi)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by WiGal

This recipe is from a KENYA AND TANZANIA site and is specifically a Swahili recipe. It is a starchy staple and they "serve it with curry or main dish". I have added a 3/4 cup of liquid since looking at Weekend's reviews. Posted for ZWT4.

Made for a great side dish for dinner tonight. We all enjoyed this, the rice did burn very slightly. Flavors were great. Made for 1-2-3 hits..
