Coconut Basil Rice

Coconut Basil Rice2


And the rice!! with coconut  and basil, totally cozy and totally delicious. I loved it! It’s incredibly simple to make.

And it can be served as is for lunch or breakfast or for packed lunch or serve it with chutney/any dip of choice.

I love basil, It’s the best smell, and in my opinion one of the best herbs. So instead of rice with loads of cilantro, which I do love too, I added some basil to this, mostly for a nice summery kick. Pretty sure you are going to love it.
