Rice Cooked in Coconut-(Wali Wa Nazi)

Rice Cooked in Coconut-(Wali Wa Nazi) created by PaulaG

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..

    Like another poster, this recipe complimented the ground beef curry wonderfully. I cooked it in a rice cooker and used calrose rice. It turned out perfect for us. I like our rice a bit sticky.

    This was cooked in the rice cooker and I will say---watch it closely. The rice did burn just a touch. In place of the coconut milk, I used recipe #187372. This made a nice side for recipe #229821. Made for *ZWT 4*

    A nice flavor change from plain rice. I used long-grain white rice. I had a little trouble with the liquid boiling off, so ended up adding about another half cup of each water and coconut milk to have enough for the rice to cook through.
