I love, love Coconut rice! Well, who doesn’t? I already have a recipe for Coconut fried rice on the blog, click HERE to view the recipe. This Ginger Coconut Rice is similar to my Nigerian Coconut Fried Rice with the main difference being the potent Ginger accent. You’ll need to incorporate loads of Ginger to thoroughly enjoy this recipe.

  1. I’ve made this for the fourth time today and it’s just a ‘wow’ each time. It’s simply amazing. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Thanks for this Sisi, please confirm if the chicken used is meant to be pre-cooked or uncooked. Thanks for your beautiful recipes!

  3. You did not respond to the question about coconut oil not being part of the listed ingredients but mentioned while you were cooking. please let us know the quantity of coconut oil required or whether one can substitute some other vegetable oil in its place. Thank you for the amazing recipes.

    • I’m so sorry. coconut oil isn’t required. It’s 1/2 a cup of vegetable oil. That’s the oil to be used for frying the chicken and used for the rice preparation as well. I’ll alter the recipe shortly. Thanks for stopping by and you’re very welcome…
