Every time I serve this rice I hear someone at the table say "this is the best rice I have ever had." I hope you get the same reviews!

Very easy to make. Cooking time was right on. I toasted the pasta in a dry frying pan. The only change I made was to substitute virgin coconut oil for the butter. But the rice didn't have that much flavor. So I added a little more salt and some lemongrass powder hoping to zing it up a bit. I garnished with toasted unsweetened coconut. If I make this again, I'll add 2-cups of coconut milk and omit the water.
