I tried this recipe in my rice cooker and it worked fantastically! I'm not sure why others have had trouble in the rice cooker, but mine came out just perfect. The rice was soft and delicious, with a touch a sweetness and a little kick of spice. This dish pairs perfectly with a spicy dish.

This rice was really good! My husband absolutely loved it. It was juuust a little on the spicy side for me, but I'll just cut the red pepper flakes a bit next time. Otherwise, really excellent! I made it with honey curry chicken.

great rice but the cook time is way off. i used light cocount milk and 1/4 cup extra water and still had crunch parts after 25 minutes of steaming. all told i would say it took about 35 minutes to finish but was worth it. had with steamed fish w/ chili lime dressing and the cocount flavor complimented the citrus/spice perfectly!

It was nice not to have to precook the rice. This recipe was simple and we will make it again...soon!

Geema easily the best coconut rice that I have tried here on Zaar. So flavorful, rich, creamy and special. I served this with Deantini's awesome Thai Beef Curry With Bamboo Shoots :) It was the perfect match, the rice complimented the curry perfectly. Thank you for sharing a new family favorite. I garnished with candied ginger, I truly couldn't have asked for anything else. Kudos on a wonderful recipe. :)

This was a lovely flavorful rice. I made a couple of changes. I added about 1/4 cup shredded carrot which really looked beautiful against the yellow rice. I also threw in a few tiny green peas - mostly for color. I didn't have any crystalized ginger but I did have some dried dates -very flavorful. I cooked the whole thinkg in my rice cooker. Next time, I'll try it with almonds - didn't have any on hand. I served this with a lemony chicken breast - the flavors were beautifully complimentary. I thnk this dish also would be good with a shrimp or seafood dish. Thanks for posting.

Great flavor, went really well with pineapple chicken (like apricot chicken but with pineapple preserves instead). Trying to be healthier, I used brown rice, the rice at the bottom of the pot got burned because of the longer cooking time. Next time I will make with white rice, and there will definitely be a next time.
