The coconut is grated using a grater to get the coconut milk which will be used in cooking the rice (Coconut milk is a sweet, milky white cooking base derived from the meat of a matured coconut).

Rinse the rice and pour it into the coconut milk and allow the rice to cook for 30 minutes. The coconut rice is ready to be eaten; some people may eat it plain while others may want some sauce added to it.
