to clarify, it's COCOA LAISA, not ARAISA.

Just a quick question...how much water do you mix the cocoa with. Is it from the 6 cups or is it in addition to the 6 cups?

I woke up at 3 AM, and all I wanted was koko laisa - didn't want to get up and try to make it, as I didn't even have the recipe until I found it here, mahalo.

Koko *Alaisa

It's koko alaisa. Araisa is also acceptable. No such word "Laisa" in the Samoan vocabulary. People may have just shortened it or say it so fast it might sound like they're saying laisa

To ease your recipe, just add the cocoa into the water that's already cooking the rice.

Does it matter if it's Alaisa or Araisa damn as long as you get your recipe your good. Why try to correct when your trying to get the recipe?! Anyways Thank you for the recipe ��������

Everytime we make this we take it off the heat before the rice is fully cooked yet it still stays too hot and ends up soaking up all extra liquid and getting soggy very quickly....how do we stop this?
