When I made the Chicken Satay a short time ago I made some delicious side dishes. One of them was Coconut Rice.
I have had Coconut Rice at Thai restaurants several times. It is wonderful. It’s one of those dishes that tastes like it is hard to make.
Like many other things that I thought would be difficult Coconut Rice is very easy to make. It was liked by everyone in the house, including D3. I mention this because she abhors coconut and coconut flavored things. Of course I failed to tell her that it was coconut flavored; D4 ratted me out.
You can believe that this easy and delicious dish is going to be making an appearance at many more meals at our house.
Have you tried Coconut Rice? It is so easy and so good that if you should.
- 1½ cups jasmine rice uncooked
- 1¼ cups water
- 1 cup coconut cream
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
In a medium saucepan combine coconut cream, water, sugar, and salt. Stir until sugar dissolves. Stir in rice.
Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 18-20 minutes until rice is tender. Fluff with a fork.
