2 Cups short grain white Rice
2 Cups thick Coconut milk
2 tsp. Salt
3 Cups Water


800g finely scraped Coconut
2 Cups Treacle (Coconut or Kithul treacle)
4 Cloves
Pinch of Salt

- Add coconut milk and Salt.

- Stir with handle of wooden spoon, cover and cook on low heat for another 10-15 minutes (until the milk has been absorbed).

- Divide the slightly cooled milk rice into two portions.

- On a flat dish, evenly spread out a layer of milk rice using one portion (should be at least 1cm thick).

- Then evenly spread the coconut treacle mix on top.
