Coconuts are actually fruits and offer a wealth of delicious products, including water, milk, and the white flesh itself. When young and green, coconuts are filled with clear water. As they mature, turning brown on the outside, the interior walls become the edible white portion. Creamy coconut milk, used in this recipe to infuse the rice, is created by pressing liquid out of the grated flesh.
