Coconut Rice (on the stove, not in a rice cooker)

Coconut Rice (on the stove top)

I first tried this recipe when having a BBQ with my inlaws. I had never tried this particular recipe before,  but I was nervous that it would not turn out…but it did!! I made a few adjustments to the original recipe on, and I came up with this. It is YUMMY! A great side-dish to any chicken, beef, etc. It is really a crowd pleaser that will make you look like a fancy chef without all of the work. I give it a 10/10. Tonight we are serving it with Tai-Pai frozen chicken pot-stickers.
You can find the JASMINE rice on the rice isle.
What you need: 
  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  •  2-3 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked jasmine rice (you really have to spring for this particular rice, it makes the dish)

What you do: 
         1.   In a saucepan, combine coconut milk, water, sugar, and salt. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Stir in rice. Turn on your burner and Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 18 to 20 minutes, until rice is tender.   The liquid should almost be all obsorbed. 
            2.    Fluff with a fork, and serve.
