3/4 coconut milk 1/4 water mixed

Turn down to medium low with the lid on for 10 minutes…stir gently one last time at about 2 minutes after adding the rice.

Take the lid off

Take the lid off to let the rice “dry out” for 20 minutes or up to 1 hour on your stoves LOWEST setting! (This step makes the rice super tasty with a crunchy bottom)

It is said that this dish is an aphrodisiac for women!?!

Tell me what you think ladies!

*Traditionally this dish is topped with honey but we like to eat it with sweet fruits like papaya, mango, banana, etc…and top it with Tomato Sauce.
