Coconut Rice: Recipe


There are many benefits of including coconut in your daily health regime. Our body converts lauric acid present in coconut into monolaurin, which helps in combating with various diseases including herpes, cytomegalovirus, influenza, and even HIV. With regular use of coconut, your body is well-protected against harmful bacteria including listeria monocytogenes too.

    Thanks, I LOVE coconut rice. Just boiling the rice with coconut milk or water didn’t work though – will try this recipe.
