1 1/2 cups coconut milk
1 cup water
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
1 cup long grain white rice
1/4 cup shredded coconut
3 tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste
Use 1 1/2 Tbs. dried Cilantro in place of the fresh.
In a saucepan, combine the coconut milk, water, salt and sugar. Bring to a boil. Add the rice, stir well and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer undisturbed until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is fluffy, about 20-25 minutes.
Remove from heat and let sit without stirring for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork and add the coconut and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper.
This goes excellent with cashew and mustard seared sea bass. :lol:
