This recipe calls for coconut milk and here is a link to a coconut milk recipe by another zaar member. I've list 3 cups of coconut milk for 1 cup of rice but you should follow the instruction on your rice package. The cook time depends on what kind of rice you're using.


  1. 1. Add all ingredients together and bring rice to a boil uncovered under medium heat. Turn to medium low, cover and continue to cook untill rice is done. Discard bay leaf and serve.

Yum, loved it, although like other reviewers stated, a bit different, but none-the-less good to the last drop. This went perfectly with some curry chicken, and will make again, loved the bay leaf! Made for ZWT7 - I used fresh coconut milk, YUM-O

I made this in my rice cooker instead of on the stove top. I really enjoyed the flavor, but I had to add water to avoid burning. Unfortunately, I don't think we'll make it again as apparently no one in my family is all the fond of coconut. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT7.

This was different & I can see many future uses for it. This is the sweetest version of coconut rice I've tried. I look forward to trying it alongside a spicer main dish as I think the contrast in the spicy against this sweet rice would enhance both. I do like the addition of the bay leaf and think a wee bit of salt could be added. Made for ZWT7.
