How to prepare a perfect Nigerian coconut rice

When I write a recipe with the word perfect in the title, best believe it’s the perfect recipe. Tested and retested until perfection is literally achieved. I honestly consider myself a maestro when it comes to infusion rice dishes, I optimize my recipes for simplicity and incredible depth of flavor, all while producing perfectly cooked separate rice grains.

I already have incredible recipes for Fried rice and Jollof rice. This coconut rice recipe should definitely be added to your arsenal.
