Sweet Coconut Rice

Sweet Coconut Rice
Serves 4 as a side dish.

1.5 C Basmati Rice
1.5 C Water or Veg Stock
1 C Coconut Milk
2 TBSP Palm Sugar or Raw Sugar
5-6 Fresh or Frozen Kaffir Lime Leaves*

  • Combine all ingredients in a pot or rice cooker and simmer on low heat with lid on for approximately 20 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed.
  • Discard kaffir lime leaves, fluff rice with a fork and serve with some toasted sesame seeds and fresh coriander.

This rice is mild and sweet. Don’t serve it with a curry or a heavy stiry fry, or the flavours will just be drowned out! I like this best with Luke Nguyen’s crisp silken tofu.

*Kaffir lime leaves are primarily used in south east Asian cuisine; you can generally purchase them at Asian grocers and some health food stores.
