To go with Carribean-ish buffet party menu jobber.

It sounds delicious, and I shall be trying it out very soon!!

It was lovely, complimented the richness of the pork and the hot/spicy curries and sides beautifully. Will be doing it again deffo.

I like the sound of it - never tried it but I love coconut based curries, Thai etc with rice. I hate it in sweet things though, biscuits, cereals etc.

Coconut rice a big success so thank you all for being so vocally allured by it.

+1 I LOVE coconut rice. Yum-o.

Allured here too - LOVE Caribbean food! Can I come for tea please? I make a great rum punch with nutmeg, the perfect drink to go with your feast {grin}

Oh not a trolley. Am working my way up to a trolley. Really need a house with a dining room to warrant getting a trolley. No I have just a tray.
I never had the Sindy version either sad

lol at hostess trolley.

My Sindy doll had one of those. It had little silver plastic tureens filled with carrots and peas (lost by Boxing day of course).

Goodness me. Am I going to have to be batting folk away from my buffet table warming tray as I reveal the rice from the cunning warming shelf within?

The thing is with coconut rice is that it's like stuffing, parsnip puree and cheesey mashed potato - it's the kind of thing you can eat straight out of the pan with a wooden spoon standing up by the cooker, sod everyone else.

GetorfsaMotherfuckingMorrisMan Thu 03-Jan-13 15:53:03

I don't have a recipe really.

Fry onion and garlic until soft, add a teaspoon of allspice and a chopped scotch bonnet (you can leave the chilli out). Add some thyme if you have it (I sometimes forget). A can of black eyed peas (drained). Then throw in some washed basmati, and a can of coconut milk and some water (use about 200g of rice) and cook on a low simmer until it's done. Loads of salt.

Slubberdegullion Thu 03-Jan-13 15:45:58

OK I see about the peas thing.

Ta for assistance, will go with the coconut.

JustAHolyFool Thu 03-Jan-13 15:45:37

Oh I LOOOOVE coconut rice.

LOOOOVE.

iseenodust Thu 03-Jan-13 15:45:22

Yum coconut rice. Had some in a restaurant recently and they put twiddley coconut shavings on top (was with Malaysian curry).

GetorfsaMotherfuckingMorrisMan Thu 03-Jan-13 15:40:44

Oh, if they are in the curry then no.

But that's what I meant about rice and peas (not birds eye green garden peas, in this context it refers to beans which go in the rice).

God I am hungry now.

Slubberdegullion Thu 03-Jan-13 15:36:25

Oh, do I need to add beans to the rice too? Black beans going into the curry.

Recipe is just softened onions in butter, rice and coconut milk.

GetorfsaMotherfuckingMorrisMan Thu 03-Jan-13 15:33:43

No, don't bother with the microwave bloody hell. It just takes the normal basmati time ime. I would recommend that you don't use kidney beans though - skin's too tough ime. Black eyed peas would be better.
