Basmati rice is simmered in coconut milk, instead of water, giving it a rich flavor.

I've been making a version of this for years to serve with any curry-type dish. I use one cup of rice, 1 14 oz. can of lite coconut milk and 1/4 cup of water. Boil water and milk, add rice, reduce heat to simmer uncovered for 20-30 minutes until rice is tender and all liquid is absorbed. No salt because usually the main dish has enough. I love it!

With some minor alterations, this recipe is fabulous. Because I'm the only one who eats this at my house, I cut the recipe in fourths. Here's what I did: 1 can (14 oz) of coconut milk 3/4 cup of Basmati rice 1 pinch salt 3 heaping tbls of sugar The rice almost soft once the rice absorbed all the coconut milk. Next time, I'd cut my rice down to 2/3 cup. Jasmine rice might work well also since it's a sweet rice. My brother introduced me to Coconut Rice when he brought home dessert leftovers from Sawatdee. They add a slice of mango to top it off. YUM!

Very easy and very tasty. I couldn't find coconut milk so I used the can of the cream of coconut that I found in the juice isle. It came out great. I used 1 can (15 oz.) with 6 servings of rice. Any white rice can be used with this recipe. Great, and VERY easy.
