Easy Steps To Making Coconut Fried Rice Recipe
Wash rice well to take out the surface starch. I will recommend to use warm water at this point.
Pour coconut milk and water into a pot , add a little seasoning cube and the rice , stir cover and cook slowly.
Heat very little oil in your frying pan, fry little chopped onion, and salt or seasoning cube, dry pepper and stir fry the seafood till cooked. Take out and set aside
Into the same frying pan add your vegetables and also stir fry for just 2 minutes and set aside. The vegetables should remain crunchy in the dish
Add a little more oil to the pan, allow to heat up , add the remaining onion, seasoning and dry pepper if you wish. Fry the onion till translucent.
Finally add the rice and stir fry. Really this is the main step of the preparation so you have to take time to fry the rice. Keep on stirring and tossing until you hear some of the rice grains popping. When this happens you will notice that the rice changes from the whitish color to translucent. Your rice is ready.
Return the seafood and vegetables to the rice pot and stir well into the rice for about 2 minutes and voila your Coconut Fried Rice is ready.
