Preparation

Chop the spring onions, onions, pepper and carrots.

Wash rice thoroughly, parboil for 5-8 mins, remove from heat, rinse and set aside

Break the coconut, scoop out the flesh and grate the coconut

Extract the milk by squeezing the grated coconut through your fingers in a bowl. Add 2-3 cups of warm water to the grated coconut and extract more milk. Use a sifter to separate the milk from the flesh and pour into your cooking pot. You can skip this process entirely by buying canned coconut milk.
