  1. This is not how Jamaican rice and peas is done! This young man did not fallow his Jamaican Grandmother recipe ! Sugar ! OH nooooooooooooo!

  2. This is the recipe I was looking for! I watched it before but making this tonight!! I did watch the quick one with the canned beans, which I like, but I have dried beans and all the ingredients for this version! Todah Chris! πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡Ή

  3. Unless you're a devout chili head, scotch bonnets or habaneros are too hot. Man, I'm not dropping that in my food. LOL! It took me several years to move up from jalapenos to cayenne peppers. Any pepper hotter than cayenne, you done lost me. But for this recipe I can use spanish aji peppers which look like scotch bonnets but are nowhere as hot.

  4. Do you take out the scallion and green onion? don't see it in the end result. Regardless, thanks for the recipe, going to try it out this weekend with my jerk

  5. Hi! I'm hosting an international dinner party tomorrow and I'll be representing my culture with some classic Jamaican dishes. I'm a little nervous as I've never actually cooked them myself. But I'll be using my mom's curry chicken recipe and definitely this rice and peas recipe too. Thanks for sharing

  6. Finally made this today and it turned out perfectly.. I ate eat with the curry chicken in one of ur other videos.. and let's just say, I almost ate the whole pot my selfπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚..

  7. I tried this recipe yesterday and boy o boy it came out beautiful πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  8. one of my faves, but I have always had it with "Pigeon Peas" which is the traditional Jamaican bean/pea of choice to my knowledge, also I have never seen rice cooked without putting the lid on the pot before, new one on me. I'll give it a go.

  9. Could you please let me know exact ratio of water and coconut milk for the rice. I love Jamaican food especially peas and rice but it's so hard to measure the water. Sometimes it turns mushy and sometimes it's hard.. πŸ™

    I am going to cook Jamaican food for my friends this Saturday and I am worried about cooking rice now….
    I am thinking about cook the rice in the oven like rice pilaf since I don't have big rice cooker…..
