Coconut Curry Rice

When you hear Coconut Curry Rice, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Most people assume it’s spicy or sweet but the reality is, the coconut is merely a subtle addition giving it a rich flavor and the curry was added for color. It’s not overly noticeable but it’s significant enough to make a difference. It isn’t sweet but it smells incredibly appetizing. I’ve made it various ways, sometimes I add a can of chickpeas to give it some dimension. I used chicken broth because that’s what I had on hand but if you’re a vegetarian you can replace that with vegetable broth. I’ve never used vegetable broth but I’m guessing it will taste just as good, if seasoned appropriately.
