vegetarian options to serve with coconut rice

My wife came across a coconut rice recipe that she would like to try. I was just wondering what vegetarian options I have to serve with this rice that would go well. Since I never really had coconut rice before, Im not sure what will work.

I get coconut rice at my favorite Indian restaurant a lot. I eat it along side any of their offerings. A lot of mine contain meat, but they have plenty of curries and other dishes that are vegetarian. Of course I do not know the names of most indian dishes so I can't be of any help there, but check out Indian cuisine for ideas and you will get plenty I am sure.

I second curried vegetables. In fact, I made my favorite hot/spicy curried vegetable dish "Green Curry" (from Anna Thomas's "The Vegetarian Epicure, Book Two") Saturday night. I think it (or something similar) would go great over Coconut Rice.

A grilled filet of (insert favorite fish here) would make a nice topper.

That is a great idea except not for a vegetarian.

Aren't vegetarians and vegans different?

Oh well, how about some grilled veggies then?

Jeekinz - yes, vegetarians & vegans are different. But neither one eats animal flesh, & that includes fish.

Generally vegetarians do not eat animals, but will eat products that come from animals.

Vegans will not eat anything that comes from animals, such as butter, cheese, etc.
