Rinse 2 C OF LONG GRAIN, JASMINE OR BASMATI RICE until liquid runs clear. Drain and set aside.
In the pot, toast 1/2 to 3/4 C UNSWEETENED COCONUT FLAKES and 1 T WHITE OR BLACK SESAME SEEDS. Toast for 3-5 minutes on medium low, stirring to prevent burning. Remove when fragrant and lightly colored. Set aside. Wipe out pot.
In the pot, melt either 2 T COCONUT OIL OR GHEE over medium low. Add 1/4 C VERY THINLY SLICED ONION OR WHITE PART OF SCALLIONS, 3 CLOVES MINCED GARLIC, A ONE INCH PIECE OF GINGER THAT IS IN THIN SLIVERS, 1 tsp TURMERIC, 1/2 tsp BLACK PEPPER, 1/4 tsp RED PEPPER FLAKES and cook, stirring, until aromatic and lightly toasted, 3 to 5 minutes.
Add the drained rice, 1 (14 oz) CAN OF COCONUT MILK (either full fat or low fat), a can of WATER, a pinch of SAFFRON if you have it, 1 tsp SALT. Mix well and bring to boil over medium high heat. Then cover, turn the heat to low/simmer for 10 minutes.
Uncover and add GREENS, an entire bunch, to the top of the rice--don't stir! (I used de-stemmed kale--about 6 huge handfuls. You can use spinach or de-stemmed chard--just account for shrinkage. I wished for more greens. You can use broccoli. You can add coarsely grated carrot. Whatever floats your boat.) Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. COVER and cook for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and keep covered for another 5 minutes. Gently mix the greens into the rice.
Add 1/2 tsp LIME ZEST to the coconut/sesame mixture that you set aside. Serve with lime wedges and the zest/coco/sesame mix.
