 Ingredients List

  • 3 3/4 c Milk
  • 1 lb Fresh Shredded Coconut
  • 3 1/2 c Long Grain Rice
  • 3 md Onions, Grated
  • 3 tb Peanut Oil
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 1/4 c Extra Coconut Milk


Bring the milk to a boil and add the shredded coconut. Remove form the heat
and let it stand, covered, for 1 hour. Mix the rice and onions and fry
together in the heated oil for about 3 minutes. Add this mixture to the
milk and coconut and add the salt. Mix well and bring to a boil. Reduce
the heat, cover, and let simmer over low heat for 30 minutes, or until the
rice has absorbed all of the liquid. If the mixture becomes too dry before

before adding, but do not let it boil.
