"My husband and children loved this!!! Have made other ones and never really went over as well! I had a can of fat-free coconut milk on hand so I used that and just added enough water to make the needed two cups. I also added a little more lime juice and a little zest. Will keep this one on hand."
"What a great recipe! It had a wonderful, light flavor that went perfectly with our supper of jerk chicken, mango salsa and black beans. Who knew making coconut milk was so easy? I made a half recipe and it did make about 3-4 servings. It cooked up perfectly--nice and fluffy. So glad I chose this recipe to make! I will definitely make again. Edited to add: Made again and, being lazy, used canned coconut milk. I definitely DO NOT recommend this. From now on, I will always make my own milk as it made the dish sweeter. Also, this last time was very salty, so note to self, use less salt!"
"Great recipe, was a big hit. Thanks for sharing, I will make this again."
"I made this and added toasted pecans and coconut prior to serving. I will add more lime juice next time and more red pepper flakes for a kick"
"We really liked this rice! Very nice, mild flavors. Served this with recipe #151955. Great dinner! Made for ZWT 5."
"wonderful recipe, made it all in my rice cooker and added a hot chile pepper to it just to balance the sweet/tart with a hint of heat."
"I hate to admit this but this recipe is better then mine LOL I added some lime zest to the mix. I think next time I will toast up some of the leftover coconut and toss that in last minute . Now to find a recipe to use the coconut. LOL It was easy to make and turned out perfectly. Made as a side with recipe#275828#275828 and recipe#373129#373129 Done for ZWT 5 Caribbean region for team Zaar Chow Hounds"
"This was yummy. Thanks"
"Awesome!!!! I didn't have quite enough coconut to make the full amount so I added some coconut water that I had on hand to make the 2c. The flavor was very light and delicate. I followed the instructions and was rewarded by not burning the rice (always a problem for me haha). Perfect light and fluffy and I made this with Mexican Lime Chicken *21935. I will def. be making this again and again. Thanks!!!"
"Very good! A nice alternative and now I can make coconut milk - 2-recipes-for-the-price-of-one. hoorah! Very clear instructuctions, thanks for posting. I served this with jerk chicken, recipe 29411."
"This was good . . . I loved learning how to make coconut milk. Thanks so much! :O)"
"I loved this rice. I served it as a side to chicken lettuce wraps. I loved the cocout flaver and subtle sweetness. Thanks."
"Best recipe I've come across for coconut rice--the lime flavor really makes it. Served it with a spicey Carribean chicken dish and curry--excellent!"
"Great rice dish! I had never made coconut milk before and was surprised how easy it was to make. Thanks ellie."
"This was a very nice rice dish. I often make my own coconut milk as in this recipe, and I prefer it to the canned."
"We really enjoyed this, especially my kids! My 5yo made up a couple of rice tacos using this (and ignoring the chicken) and my 1 year old couldn't get enough of this. I used a can of coconut milk and enough water to make it 2 cups. It cooked up perfectly and tasted very good. I have been disappointed by coconut milk in rice before (smelled divine, tasted bland) - but this rice held up to the promise of the aroma. Next time I make curry, I am definitely making this rice again!"
"This was great! Made as is - my first time making coconut milk!! Love the subtle taste of sweetness in the rice!! Thanks ellie!!"
"Absolutely wonderful flavor. I wonder if a can of coconut milk would work?"
