KILISHI (JERKY) COCONUT RICE SERVED WITH VEGETABLES

Image
Kilishi meat is Nigerian beef jerky likened to suya meats with almost similar ingredients but the preparation is different. It tastes like the dried form of Suya meats. While suya is moist, kilishi is dry and spicy from Northern Nigeria so I guess people in Northern Nigeria will be more able to cook this coconut rice dish than people in other parts. Finding Kilishi to buy in The South is not easy so we'll just manage like tha...

My coconut rice cooked with all coconut rice ingredients and some dried kilishi meats.
This kilishi coconut rice I'm posting today is a repeat. There were no pictures when I made the first pot, didn't plan on posting a recipe until the eaters started asking for more and won't stop talking about mommy's Kilishi coconut rice. Luckily, we were driving around the kilishi market in Garki and I had to stop for 2 wraps of Kilishi just for coconut rice and my kilishi fried rice, I'll share that later. If you think you have tasted the best coconut…

DRIED TILAPIA COCONUT RICE

Image
It's dried tilapia coconut rice because it was cooked with dried tilapia as the source of protein. Coconut rice is best cooked with dried fish if there is no fish, crayfish has to be added to get that local Nigerian coconut rice flavour.

FRIED COCONUTTY COCONUT RICE

Image
This FRIED COCONUT RICE is completely different from coconut fried rice. It's simple, cooked with very few ingredients so that the coconut flavour is not overpowered. There's no use of thyme, curry or any flavouring, just the fried coconut milk, proteins, pepper salt and seasoning cubes. No amount of explanation can give the true taste and feeling of this fried coconutty delicacy compared to other coconut rice recipes we are used to.

EASY FRIED COCONUT RICE. Well, I add COCONUTTY to the name because the coconut flavour is strong here. The cooking method is different, the taste is so different. If you love coconut dishes, if you like toasted coconut flakes, you'll love this fried coconut milk rice. Frying the coconut milk is what gives it that

How To Cook Roasted Coconut Rice

Image
Roasted coconut rice has that extra roasted aroma that makes you want to eat some more. I wanted to
cook coconut rice but in a different way and while staring at the coconut lying on the table, I just went..."Why not roast the coconut first before blending?" I
quickly picked it up and started cleaning to cook before the idea disappears.

It's very easy to cook and the whole family enjoyed this flavour. When coconut is roasted, it brings sout very good aroma, imagine how it will taste after blending. The roasted coconut milk I tasted after sieving, it was so good, couldn't share. Great if you don't want to sweeten your milk. The roasting gives it both inviting aroma and

COCONUT RICE WITH GREEN VEGETABLES

How to cook Nigerian coconut rice with green vegetables
Coconut rice is cooked with coconut milk. These days, one doesn't have to grate coconuts as the blender can do a better job, there are also coconut milk cans in shops or coconut cream powder for one to use. There is no need for step by step pictures or recipe as we havecoconut rice recipe already on the blog. The vegetables came in last and it was just a sprinkle of green amaranth (aleho) vegetables. I like to add crayfish and smoked fish to coconut rice, but here I didn't. Just cooked with chicken stock and served with grilled chicken. I boiled 1 kg chicken, took out the stock for my coconut rice, before grilling.
Tastes so good, you'll love it.
