mung atta kiribath 


  • Half handful dry mung beans
  • 1 portion basmati rice ((2-3 handfuls dry rice)
  • ½ can thick coconut milk and 1/4 can water mixed
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
  • salt and pepper


1) Boil the mung beans in plenty of salted water until they are cooked, this should take 25-30 minutes.

2) Meanwhile, cook the rice in the coconut milk mixture with salt pepper and the sliced garlic. I suggest adding the liquid a bit at a time, until the rice is cooked, as you would for a risotto. This ensures you don’t have too much liquid. 

3)When the rice is cooked mix in the cooked mung beans and allow to rest and absorb any excess liquid. 

NB: Mung beans are optional !
