Coconut Rice

Imagine if you could perceive the fragrant aromas from this coconut rice! I’m looking forward to a day when technology advances to capture smell as we capture pictures.

I’ve always made my own Coconut oil, and I make enough to last me a year. Somehow I ran out without knowing I was finishing my last bottle. I found myself buying coconut oil for the first time almost a month ago. It cost a pretty penny. It doesn’t help that Coconuts became really scarce before the lock down and now they are pretty pricey. I have to make my coconut oil before this one I bought is exhausted. See How to make Coconut oil.

I would rarely eat coconut rice that I didn’t cook, too many pretend coconut rice that taste nothing like it, especially at some of the fast food joints. Let me show you how I make mine and have people come back for seconds and thirds.

Recipe.
