  1. In a saucepan, combine the rice, coconut milk and water. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the rice has absorbed all of the liquid. Set aside to cool down.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the lime juice, peanut butter, sesame oil, fish sauce, curry paste and garlic. Taste, and adjust the flavor of the dressing to your liking.
  3. When the rice has cooled, stir in the dressing along with the coconut, raisins and almonds. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, and up to one day.

This Rice Salad is AWESOME!!!! Everyone loves it - served hot or cold - doesn't matter - as long as there is enough to go around, they are happy! Your friends & family will rave over this one!!

I followed this recipe to the letter and ended up wit hdry tasteless rice. It was a waste of ingredients. Maybe if you doubled the sauce, it might be OK.

Was very disappointed. The contrast of hot and sweet just was not there despite the combination of raisins and curry paste. Also had issues with the texture not living up to what I am used to in...


This was really good. I served it hot with curry. I left out the rasins and almonds. Thanks!
