West African Coconut Rice
West African Coconut Rice Preparation
Bring coconut milk to a boil. combine rice, crayfish, tomatoes and onions with coconut milk in steaming pan; season with salt and cayenne pepper to taste. Cover and steam until rice is quite dry, 18 to 20 minutes. Fluff with fork before serving. Adjust seasoning if necessary. Variation: To make coconut milk, cover fresh grated coconut with hot water (approximately 3 cups). Let soak 20 to 30 minutes. Place in colander; drain over a bowl, squeezing out as much liquid as possible. Makes about 2 cups. If not, add a bit more water to the grated coconut, drain again. NOTES : Rice is cooked in coconut milk as is sometimes done in the Far East. The West African touch is the addition of tomatoes and onions. Recipe by: The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook by Betty L.
