Hey there, welcome back to my kitchen.
So today, I want to teach you on how to make basic Nigerian Coconut Rice; a full video is on my IGTv-here
Dryfish and Crayfish
Tatashe, shumbo, Onions (Blended some of it to make into a paste, sliced some- because a girl loves pepper. Lol)- the sliced pepper and onions is optional
Black ground Pepper
How to Prepare on medium heat:
Put your coconut oil in a dry pot; this depends on how much you are cooking; (that is, the amount of oil used is based on the quantity you are using) PS: any oil can be used; I just want the ‘coconuty taste’ LOL
After 2 mins, add your blended pepper and the sliced pepper and onions
Add all your seasonings and spices, stir and leave to fry for 3 minutes.
Add Coconut Milk, almost immediately add the parboiled rice. Be sure to use enough coconut milk. Leave for 8-10 mins to simmer
Add the deboned dryfish and crayfish; I added extra grounded crayfish (just because I can. LOL).
Stir and leave it to cook till the water is dry.
Viola, your Coconut Rice is ready. And you can serve it with anything.
Hope you enjoy your meal,
I would love feedbacks, and please like and share.
Till next time,
