garlic-rice+recipe    
   This is a very simple rice recipe perfect for using your leftover rice. Not that you can make it with the fresh cooked rice. This recipe is from a TV show I think. My MIL told the recipe over phone and asked to try it out, even she insisted to blog it here…:) So I had some leftover rice and tried this recipe today. The coconut and coconut oil used to temper adds a great flavour to this rice other than the flavor of garlic.
