Coconut Rice

Coconut Rice

I heartily thank Plattershare for giving me an opportunity in their "Belly Nirvana Program" to make recipes using specialised products. I also thank Go Organic India for providing me their premium product Coconut Oil to use in a recipe of my choice.

Before I received this product few days back one of my family member was diagnosed having high LDL Cholesterol (bad one) and when I was exploring on net food having low LDL, I was surprised to learn that Coconut Oil really is having many nutritional values. However some of its properties surprised me like it reduces LDL to HDL ratio and increases HDL; it also helps in reducing weight as it increases energy expenditure.

Though in our North Indian diet we rarely use coconut oil. With all this in mind, when I received this product I made this recipe and I got a totally different aroma so soothing that it was tempting me to take it fast down my throat. This encouraged me to make more dishes using this virgin coconut oil.
