I nice side dish to complement a spicy main dish. Very easy.

This was really good. I halved this because I was unsure if my family would like this. The can of coconut milk I used was a 13.5 ounces. I think if it was 14 ounces or more it would have been creamier and more flavorful. I used long grain rice and will use instant rice next time. I can never seem to get long grain rice fully cooked. My bad!. Overall, I would definitely make this again.
