Coconut Milk Pulao

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

I can survive without coconut, But Shankar cannot .. So, I made this specially for him during one of our travels. He hadn't eaten coconut in a while & was craving for a coconut based dish. So I ran to the supermarket, bought a can of coconut milk & made this one 

I just went about adding whatever little was available in the pantry & I turned out really good .. Very mildly spicy & just a little sweetness coming form coconut milk .. Maybe you guys should try this too
