Coconut Lime Rice



Wow, this came very delicious and I will make it again: all family enjoyed it and was really very delighted!

While I was boiling the water with the coconut flakes I prepared the roasted rice.

After sieving the coconut mixture I added the freshly pressed coconut milk as well as salt and pepper.

During this step I squeezed the lime and I added the whole peel to the boiling rice. Just before serving I discard the peel, added lime juice, stirred and served. As topping I used some sliced basil (a kind of sweet basil) leaves.

Thanks Annacia for another wonderful dish!
