Pour the oil into a rice cooker and parboil the coconut until golden brown. Add the garlic and parboil. Then add the rice (without soaking), salt, sugar, coconut milk and a cup of hot water. Stir and cover until the rice absorbs the liquid. If it needs more water, add some of the half cup of hot water that you have set aside. When the rice is ready, let it cool off and add the fried bacon and the sweet plantains. Incorporate these ingredients, garnish with cilantro leaves and serve as a side to meat or fish dishes.
