Coconut Rice

You will need:

2 cups rice (long grain)

2 1/2 cups coconut water

1 tsp salt

2 cups coconut milk

  • Wash the rice in a strainer under cool water.  Drain well.
  • Place rice in a heavy pot and add coconut water and salt.  Stir several times.
  • Bring to a boil, then add coconut milk and stir well.  Reduce heat to low flame, cover and cook undisturbed for 15 minutes, then uncover and check rice to make sure it isn't too dry
  • Add a little more coconut milk if necessary and cook until rice is very soft and liquid is absorbed
  • Optional: If you wanna serve this the 'old fashioned way' you can spoon the cooked rice into a lightly buttered 2 quart baking dish and let rest, covered or chill until firm.  You then slice the rice to serve it.
