Grains like rice are a staple ingredient in various Asian cuisines, but they’re often bland and boring. It’s time to ratchet up the flavor and take this common side dish to the next level by infusing coconut milk with long grain jasmine rice. With very little effort you’ll have a bowl of rice that has nutty aromas, sweet flavor, along with a slightly sticky texture that pairs nicely with meats and vegetables.
The method for this recipe uses the standard way of cooking white rice on the stovetop. You’ll have a perfectly cooked rice ready to go in under 30 minutes from start to finish. This quickness will allow you plenty of time to focus on what you’ll be serving alongside these grains. Just be sure to toast up a few coconut flakes to sprinkle on top right before serving for extra flavor and crunch….
