Coconut Fried Rice

Coconut fried rice is a very lovely twist to regular fried rice, the coconut milk added gives it a sweet and unique rich taste and flavour.


  • 420grams Rice
  • Coconut milk (1 tin , 400ml)
  • 1tsp Turmeric powder
  • 380g king size prawns (cooked)
  • 50ml vegetable oil
  • 1medium onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1/2 tsp mixed herbs
  • 100ml water or Stock
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Maggi cubes
  • 100g Spring onions 
  • Mixed bell peppers (1 of each colour)
  • Carrots, Peas,Green beans, Sweet corn OR 500g mixed vegetable

 (If using fresh vegetables, chop them and set aside, if using frozen mixed vegetables take them out and defrost.

 Instructions:Soak rice in hot water, cover for about 10 minutes, wash with warm water and set aside.Set a large pot on fire, pour in the coconut milk, garlic, half of your chopped onions, turmeric, pepper, salt, and maggi. Stir and do not forget to taste.

  • Allow to boil for about 5 minutes, then add your rice, and mix properly and add some water. you just need enough covering just about all the rice. cook on low-medium heat.  (keep an eye on your rice,you do not want to over cook the rice. )
    In a separate pot, pour in your oil, allow to heat up then add chopped onions, cooked prawns, mixed veg and peppers and some seasoning. Mix together and allow on heat for 5 minutes. fried rice is never nice with over cooked vegetables. Be careful with the maggi and salt as you already added some to the rice..
  • Add spring onions and stir, leave for another 3 minutes , then take off heat.
  • combine the cooked rice and the vegetable together. you can either do it all at once, or mix in batches.
  • Serve with salad or coleslaw.
