Sweet Coconut Rice

    25 minutes

    Instead of just water, use some coconut milk for a more-flavourful rice. Goes great with curry.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 1/2 cups long-grain or Jasmine white rice
    • 1 (400g) tin coconut milk
    • 1 1/4 cups water
    • 1 teaspoon sugar, or to taste
    • 1 tablespoon desiccated coconut, or to taste (optional)

    Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Stir rice, coconut milk and water together in a saucepan. Dissolve sugar into the liquid.
    2. Bring the mixture to a simmer; reduce heat to medium-low, cover the saucepan and simmer until the majority of the liquid has been absorbed by the rice, 15 to 20 minutes. Turn heat off and let rice steam until sticky, about 5 to 10 minutes more. Garnish with coconut.

    This was reminiscent of rice pudding for me because of the creaminess. I used palm sugar because I don't cook with white sugar(personal preference). 1 tsp was enough. Shredded coconut added a welcomed texture. I'll make this again. Thanks Melucy.  -  05 Apr 2014  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    We LOVED this! I only used the teaspoon of sugar called for b/c I didn't want it too sweet, and that was perfect, so if you want it SWEET def add more sugar. I liked the addition of the coconut sprinkled on top, which also gave some sweetness to the rice, so keep that in mind as well if you plan on using it. I added some salt, but that was per my own preference. Oh, and I used Jasmine rice, which was wonderful in this. I would def be making this again~YUM! Thanks for sharing.  -  26 Mar 2014  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Amazing! My boyfriend made this last night with caramelized baked chicken (another wonderful recipe on here). It went perfect with it! I loved the sweetness of this rice. It is the right amount of sweet. Delicious!  -  01 Mar 2015  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
