Coconut Milk Fried Rice

                                        Coconut Milk Fried Rice

As I mentioned earlier I am using  lite organic coconut milk  in my dishes quite often.This recipe is  again a simple one that I prepared it for our lunch boxes on a weekday morning.I noticed that usage of coconut milk instead of water in fried rice maintains the white color .The texture was very creamy and we liked it.This is a short post as I am writing this in my short break at work.
