  1. Thanks for the receipe. I had some modifications to this.

    1. Generally I add 2 cups of water for 1 cup of rice. Here I added 0.75 cup of Coconut Milk and 1.25 cups of water for the same 1 cup of rice. The catch is that quantity of coconut milk should be less than quantity of water.

    2. Added some beans and carrots as well to make more vegetables :)
