Coconut Rice Printable Version of this Recipe


by Meps,  sailor & the foodiegazzette

Side note from editor:  I make this myself, but have never added sugar as I find the coconut milk sweet enough for me.  It's great alongside chicken. 
  • 1-1/2 cup white rice
  • 1-1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup coconut milk, well-stirred

Rinse rice. In a heavy medium saucepan, combine with water, sugar, salt, and coconut milk. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 18 minutes, covered.

Do not peek — if your pan doesn’t have a glass lid, and you’re not sure if the heat under it is right, carefully listen to it.  Remove from heat and let sit for 6 minutes without opening it.  Then fluff with a fork and serve.
