Coconut milk vegetable rice – easy lunchbox recipes

Hello to all the readers of creative Saga.Its been a really long time since I opened my blog and decided to write a post. Things have been busy as usual and tiring. So I hardly get a chance and the determination to open the laptop and blog. I have been wanting to write a post for a very long time.So finaIly I decided to do it today. When I opened my blog, I realized that my food pictures are in my old phone and I hadn’t bothered to copy them into my laptop. But I was quite determined today to do a post. So when I scanned my phone, I found the picture of this plate which I had posted in my Instagram yesterday. I had a few people asking for the recipe too. So I decided to write about it today. I had no step by step pictures too, but decided to go ahead as the recipe is hardly complicated.coconut milk riceWell this rice variety is quite delicious. Its not too spicy, but you can make it spicy if you prefer it that way by adding more green chillies and some red chilly powder. But we prefer it non spicy. I used the curry powder , we got in Srilanka during our visit there in December. Its mildly flavoured and has a obvious flavor of cinnamon. We visited a spice garden in Srilanka and there they showed us how they roast the different spices and then powder them using a stone mortar pestle. Cinnamon is a popular spice there and highly dominates the other spices in their food. We also visited a place called cinnamom island and there they showed us how they make different products of cinnamon. You can check out my video in youtube about the cinnamon island.

Meanwhile checkout the recipe for the rice below. Its very easy to make and takes very less time and is a ideal recipe to carry in your lunchbox.
