This was a great dish to go along with Jamaican Jerked Chicken. I used 1/2 coconut milk and 1/2 water to cook the rice. Just perfect taste to go along with the spicyness of the main dish.

mmmm, definitely briliiant. would keep this recipe. I used shrimp in mine, and also added a dab of salt and pepper. like other reviewers it is definitely a different taste, but real good. Other modifications; i used basmati rice and steamed the rice first till done. Then stir fried the cooked rice with the other ingredients. I also used coconut milk in part to cook the rice.

I was very suprised that I liked this! I only made it to go with the Jamaican beef patties, and I had all the ingredients on hand, but it was actually pretty tastey. I wouldn't want it everyday, and I was scared of eating any leftovers because of the banana, but it was definitely a good side for the Jamaican themed dinner.
