Thanks Janet, I'll do that with basmati rice when we next have a curry (a chicken and coconut one I expect!!!).

And Nadine, that cake looks/sounds absolutely wonderful, a real celebration cake.

Well, the Bounty bars are made, they're in the fridge waiting for the chocolate to set.  They look like reject, erm, rustic versions of the real thing big_laugh but I'm sure they'll taste just as good!  As to whether I'll make them again - I don't know, putting the chocolate on is a messy and long business (I followed what the guy in the video did).  But I think it will be worth it as a one off when husband sees (and tastes!!) them!

Can't upload any pics as since the house move I can't yet find the USB lead thingy to attach my phone to the computer doh

They are very nice, husband was suitably appreciative, apart from saying the choc was a bit too thick and he'd have preferred milk to plain choc roll_eyes.  IF I make them again, I may make smaller versions, perhaps little balls the size of those Ferrero Roche things - would probably be easier to just drop those into the melted choc rather than the spooning over method I used for the bars.

Having roast lamb today so will make a lamb (and coconut!) curry for tomorrow with the leftovers, and coconut rice to accompany.  And I think that will be it for coconut flavoured stuff for a week or two....whistlebig_laugh
