Sweet Coconut Rice is another traditional Goan dish that is prepared in the GSB community. This is not like the South Indian Coconut Rice, but is unique to the Goan cuisine. We prepare this rice on religious occasions. Another version of sweet rice is Sakhar Bhaat or Sugar Rice. I shall share the Sakhar Bhaat recipe some other time.
If you want to surprise your guests with something different, then make this sweet coconut rice and serve it as dessert. It can also be served as prasadam for poojas. This is a no onion no garlic preparation and taste is yummy. The flavors of cardamom, coconut, basmati rice and sweetness of sugar jell well.
Since it is sweet and loaded with calories, one cannot eat it in large quantity. You can reduce or increase sugar quantity as per your taste. Diabetic people can use sugar-free alternatives. Enjoy this sweet coconut rice today J
