Posted for Zaar World Tour 2006. This is an African rice recipe. If you want, you can add 1/2 cup grated coconut to give it a stronger coconut flavor.

Loved this rice. We eat a LOT of rice andthis was an easy and delicious new way of preparing it. Perfect for the spicy "Recipe #259072" dish that I made to go with this. Thanks so much for the recipe. Although the review is late I made this for ZWT4 while travelling the world with my Babes.
