15 minute Creamy Coconut Rice

Coconut rice is something that was a staple whenever we were on a long travel, reason being that it would last forever. I craved it a lot when I was pregnant. My mom tells me that she did not add any vegetable to this rice, but I did when I attempted it. I was pleasantly surprised.
Today, I came home hurriedly to do my Sai Puja. I made this for my Prasad. I wanted to take pictures, but it was gone before I could.
