So of late I’ve been quite interested in West African cooking (No I don’t have a man from that side of the world) for a while actually I’ve been looking for way to make plantains differently. So during my search I run into a site called My Belle Don Full and the first dish she had was this amazing sounding coconut rice. For me coconut rice has always been just that rice with coconut milk/ cream and sometimes a little sugar or chilli. What this lady had done was something totally different from our Kenyan “norm”.
She had added roast chicken, carrots, onions, fish etc to coconut rice. I found it quite interesting and just had to try it. I have done it a few times over the last few months and I LOVE it each and every time. I know it sounds unconventional but try it I promise you that you will love it.
I changed a few things a bit, for example I do not always use the carrots; I don’t think it makes such a big difference and I also do not use crayfish as I have NO idea where to get it so I substitute it with fish sauce. Do not leave this out as I think it adds an amazing flavour to the rice. I tried it without and it was not as tasty.
I really hope you will enjoy this dish, coz it is truly amazing. Thank you amy belle don full. HAPPY COOKING!
