 100 ml of coconut milk
 125 g long grain white rice
 1/4 cup water
 50 g dried grapes
 1/2 cup unsweetened grated coconut
 20 g brown sugar
 Salt and pepper to taste


 In a saucepan over low heat, pour some of the coconut milk, then mix by scraping the bottom of the saucepan with a wooden spoon.
 As the liquid reduces, it thickens and the coconut oil begins to separate from the milk.
 Continue stirring until a thick dough is obtained and small pieces appear.
 When the pieces turn brown, add the rest of the coconut milk, water, rice, dried grapes, sugar, salt and pepper.
 Simmer and cover until the mixture dries out and the rice is cooked.
 If the rice is not cooked and the liquid has dried, add a little water.
 In the meantime, toast the grated coconut in a dry skillet over medium heat.
 Stir regularly to avoid burning them.
 Add the coconut to the rice, then check the seasoning.
 Enjoy it!
