Coconut Milk Rice: Coconut Milk rice is quite popular in the Southern part of India & it’s made in many ways. A fragrant, tasty and mild coconut milk pulao made with basmati rice, coconut milk, spices and herbs. It goes well with chicken or mutton(goat) curry or vegetable korma. I’m using homemade fresh coconut milk. I will share the recipe soon. If you are a vegan please omit ghee in this recipe. Thanks for watching. For more & easy recipes please follow me. Have a great day!
