    1. 1
      In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add the onion and curry powder and saute for 5 minutes, or until the onion is soft. Then, stir in the rice until coated with butter.
    2. 2
      Vigorously shake the can of coconut milk. Then, add the entire contents to the rice and stir until evenly blended. Increase heat and bring the mixture to a boil.
    3. 3
      Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes, until the coconut milk is absorbed. Add salt and pepper if you wish.
    4. 4
      This rice dish goes especially well with curries.

      This was really good. I did add more curry powder (maybe almost 2 tsp total), used 1 cup basmati rice, and added a bit of water. No salt or pepper needed. The only reason I didn't eat it all is because I did see the nutrition facts on the side of the coconut milk! A good compliment to my trader joe's jar of curry simmering sauce with white fish and zucchini. Loved it!

      I was about to post this exact recipe myself; that pretty much says how much I like Coconut Rice. I've served this at several dinner parties, usually to accompany a hot/spicy main dish, and always to much acclaim.

      Very hard recipe for me to rate, I thought it was good, DW didn't like it and one of the guests raved about it. I used Texmati rice because it was what I had on hand. The nuttynes of the rice came thru good. I didn't taste much curry powered. Like one of the other reviewers, I would add more curry, I have never cooked with Coconut Milk before. I shook the can viigorously, but when opened it it t had the texture of playdough. When I added it, the bottom of the can had the all liquid in it. I don't think a paint shaker would of combined it, I broke it up and stirred it around the pan until it combined. Don't know if this could of affected the results or not.
