Recipe: Coconut Rice

Ingredients:
1 cup rice
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Optional: 1/4 cup shredded coconut (for added texture and flavor)

Instructions:

Cooking in the pot
1. Rinse the rice under cold water until the water runs clear. This helps remove excess starch and prevents the rice from becoming too sticky.

2. In a saucepan, combine the rinsed rice, coconut milk, water, coconut oil, and salt.

3. Place the saucepan over medium-high heat and bring the mixture to a boil.

4. Once it boils, reduce the heat to low, cover the saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, and simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the rice is tender and has absorbed the liquid.

5. Once cooked, let the rice sit, covered, for an additional 5 minutes. Then, fluff the rice with a fork to separate the grains.

6. If you're using shredded coconut, you can toast it in a dry pan over medium heat until golden brown. Sprinkle the toasted coconut over the cooked rice for added flavor and texture.

7. Serve the coconut rice as a side dish with your favorite curry, grilled vegetables, or protein.

 

Cooking in the rice cooker
1. Rinse the rice under cold water until the water runs clear to remove excess starch.

2. Place the rinsed rice in the rice cooker. Add coconut milk, water, and salt to the rice cooker. Mix well to ensure the ingredients are evenly distributed.

3. If you're using shredded coconut, you can add it to the rice cooker at this stage for extra flavor and texture.

4. lose the rice cooker lid and set it to the "Cook" or "White Rice" setting. Let the rice cooker do its job until it switches to the "Keep Warm" setting.

5. Allow the rice to sit in the rice cooker for an additional 5-10 minutes with the lid on. This helps the rice finish steaming. Afterward, fluff the rice with a fork to separate the grains.

6. Serve the coconut rice as a delicious side dish with your favorite main course.
