Food Month Pot-pourri – Cuckoo For Coconuts!

Coconut Rice with Raisins

1 coconut

4 cups rice

8 cups coconut milk

1/2 stick butter

1 cup raisins

3 spoons brown sugar

Salt to taste


Grate the coconut, add warm water. Squeeze to extract the milk then put milk in pot and add sugar and bring to a boil.

Boil until it is a custard. To the remaining coconut trash, add seven cups of warm water. Put in blender then squeeze until you get seven cups. The best colour for the custard is brown like a cinnamon stick.

When the custard is brown, add the remaining coconut milk then salt. Boil for five minutes then add four cups rice. Let it simmer for another 15 minutes then add raisins. Let simmer for another five minutes then remove. Cover and let cook for another 20 minutes.
