Arroz con coco (coconut rice) is a dish prepared by cooking white rice in coconut milk or coconut flakes. As both the coconut and the rice-plant are indigenous in places all-around the world, coconut rice too is found in many cultures throughout the world (spanning across the equator from the caribbean to southeast-Asia).
In Colombia (the Caribbean coast) and surrounding nations, the white rice and coconut milk is combined with shredded coconut meat, water, salt, and sugar.
In the begining of the video, the word titoté appears and this refers to “the brown curls that result after coconut milk is cooked long enough to “curdle” and separate. It has a concentrated, toasted, aromatic coconut flavor that nothing else equals,” according to Patricia McCausland-Gallo in her book Secrets of Colombian Cooking.
