Here's how I have been making it. I got the recipe from a Jamaican How-to video on youtube, so I guess this is the Jamaican way of doing it.
You will need:
-Coconut Milk; powdered or canned
-Beans; black turtle or red kidney (canned is easier)
-Hot peppers; Scotch Bonnet or Habenero (if you want it *spicy*)
-Other optional stuff; garlic, onions, ginger (comme vous-voulez)
First measure out the quantity of rice, I use 100ml or roughly half a cup of rice.
Now, measure twice the amount of rice in coconut milk. I use the powdered kind. Just measure out in warm water then add a spoonful or two and mix.
Next, take two pieces of green onion and separate it in halves. You'll put this in the liquid as is to add flavour.
Also, take a few sprigs of thyme. You can put this in as is, or just put in the leaves.
