Use dry kidney beans for a richer colour and taste. Use canned beans to save time. 

Soak dry beans overnight and pressure cook before adding the rice to soften the beans in little. 

Homemade coconut milk has a richer flavour and less coconut cream than tinned coconut milk. Use less of the cream from tinned coconut milk to not make the rice sticky.

Basmati rice takes less liquid and time to cook than long-grain rice. Use less water and coconut milk when cooking basmati rice than long-grain rice.

1 cup Red kidney beans 1 cup Coconut milk 1½ cup Long grain rice ½ red onion 2 Garlic cloves 2 Stak scallions 4 Sprig thyme 1 Scotch bonnet pepper 5 Pimento berries (allspice) 2 tsp Salt Water
