Coconut Curried Rice

Updated on January 21, 2017

Curried Rice - A Unique Side Dish!

When you have very little to work with you use what you have available. I had a cup of rice left in the pantry, plenty of curry powder, some coconut milk left over from lunch and chicken broth in the fridge that had to used somehow. Since money was tight and I had to bring lunch with me to work I thought "Why not make rice interesting for a change?" The key to this rice is toasting it the way you would Rice-a-Roni to bring out all the flavors and add a layer of complexity to the dish before you add the liquid. This recipe makes about 2 cups of rice.

Make It Vegetarian!

Use your favorite vegetable broth, bouillon, or stock. Plain water will work as well. Don't do butter or ghee? Use expeller-pressed coconut oil or virgin coconut oil. If you like you can use a vegan butter substitute. Add peppers, onions, garlic, etc and make your own unique coconut rice pilaf!

You are only limited by your imagination. Sky's the limit!
