      I made this to go with Sticky Chicken Drumsticks made with hot chili sauce, and this was the perfect rice to contrast with the heat from the chicken. I used leftover rice, and the directions for using leftover rice worked out perfectly. Thanks for sharing! Made for Newest Tag.

      Coconut rice is such a nice foil for spicy dishes, like the spicy scallops I prepared. I modified quantities on the fly to fit my 3-cup rice cooker. One thing I did do in addition was to take the lonely lemongrass stalk languishing in the veggie bin, peel it, smash it, cut into a few large chunks and throw it in with the rice. The lemongrass fragrance really enhanced the rice.

      I was worried that this rice might be too creamy and sticky, not so at all........ The rice was really nice.
      The rice turned out really well, a great texture with just a subtle flavor of coconut. The coconut milk did not overpower the rice at all.
      Served with a stir fry chicken this was just the thing. We really liked the rice made like this.
      Thanks awalde for another great recipe
