We love rice and are always looking for new ways to make it - this recipe is adapted from a cookbook called "Favorite Vegetarian Dishes". It is very fragrant and looks beautiful when served.

i made this as directed (minue the curry leaf)but the rice came out hard-i would add about 1/2 cup of chicken broth next time-also there were no directions how long to cook the rice-it took about 25 minutes for all the liquid to be absorbed so i would recommend that cooking time would be about 25 minutes plus an additional 15 mintes standing time before serving-the taste is very good! I will try this again with the added liquid and time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil, add shallots, bay leaves, curry leaves and rice, and stir over medium heat until the rice turns translucent.
  2. Add the coconut milk, salt and peas and bring to a boil until most of the liquid is absorbed.
  3. Reduce heat to very low, cover, and cook for a few more minutes, being vigilant that the rice does not scald at the bottom.
  4. Remove bay and curry leaves and stir in the cilantro, mint and chilies.
  5. Fluff up with a fork, garnish with lime wedges if desired and serve immediately.
