Eating the plain rice everyday keeps boring, so I have tried in coconut milk. Nothing difficult usually rice are cooked with water, but here it’s cooked with both water and coconut milk. The cooking time is also very less and the way of cooking is very easy. This being rich in flavor,  taste and appearance can be served at festivals or for guests.
