Warm, fragrant coconut rice makes a beautiful companion to many dishes. Shredded coconut adds a burst of flavor and crunch for a rice unlike any other.
|2||cups||Jasmine rice or scented white rice**|
|1||13.5-ounce can||unsweetened coconut milk***|
*Coconut oil is found in good markets, Indian groceries or online. Substitute vegetable oil in a pinch but really try to use the coconut oil.
**Do not substitute other types of rice or the recipe will not work properly.
***I use Chaokoh brand coconut milk because of all I’ve tried, it give the very best coconut flavor. It’s available in large chain supermarkets in the Asian food section
