Coconut Rice

READY IN: 25mins
Top Review by sarah.haddox

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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  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. 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. 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. This rice dish goes especially well with curries.
