Coconut Rice made with coconut oil – healthy coconut rice!
I’ve come across and tasted lots of coconut rice – I absolutely love Indian and Thai food! My version of coconut rice is alot lighter than most because I don’t use coconut milk. My light yet super buttery, creamy and oh so delicious Coconut Rice is made with using coconut oil! This recipe is so simply made using a rice cooker! All I do is add in my rice, water and a tablespoon of coconut oil into my rice cooker and turn it on and cook the rice until fluffy. Enjoy my recipe demonstration below, to learn how to easily make Coconut Rice and have it with your favorite sauce such as my Chili Lime Chicken!
