Learn how to cook Nigerian Coconut Rice with fresh coconut milk.

The Nigerian Coconut Rice looks exactly like the Nigerian Jollof Rice but there are two ways to tell them apart:

If you cook your Coconut Rice with natural Coconut Milk you extracted yourself, your Coconut Rice will have a very strong coconut aroma. But if you use the tinned coconut milk, it may not have such a strong aroma. This is because the tinned coconut milk may have been extracted from immature coconuts.

Coconut Rice has a taste to die for which it gets from the coconut milk. This flavour is what sets Coconut Rice apart from Jollof Rice.

Before you cook your Coconut Rice please do the following:
1. Prepare your Nigerian Tomato Stew for Jollof Rice recipes:

2. Extract the coconut milk. Please do not use tinned coconut milk if you want your coconut rice to be special

3. Season, cook and grill your chicken

4. Parboil your long grain rice to make it fit for cooking Coconut Rice. If you do not parboil the long grain rice, your Coconut Rice will not be done and it will burn!

Ingredients used in the video:
1 head of coconut with which I made 600mls of coconut milk (20 oz)
Long Grain Rice -- 1 Kg (2.2 pounds) This rice served 8 people
1 whole chicken cut to pieces
1 small bowl of Tomato Stew

How much heat do you need when cooking the Coconut Rice?
Once you add the parboiled rice, lower the heat to low. My cooker heating is from 1 - 9 and I usually set my heating to 4 once I add the parboiled rice. So if your cooker heating is from 1 - 6, set the heat to something like 2. The low heat is so that your Coconut rice will not burn before the water dries up.
