"I made this to go with Sticky Chicken Drumsticks made with hot chili sauce, and this was the perfect rice to contrast with the heat from the chicken. I used leftover rice, and the directions for using leftover rice worked out perfectly. Thanks for sharing! Made for Newest Tag."
"Coconut rice is such a nice foil for spicy dishes, like the spicy scallops I prepared. I modified quantities on the fly to fit my 3-cup rice cooker. One thing I did do in addition was to take the lonely lemongrass stalk languishing in the veggie bin, peel it, smash it, cut into a few large chunks and throw it in with the rice. The lemongrass fragrance really enhanced the rice."
"I was worried that this rice might be too creamy and sticky, not so at all........ The rice was really nice.
The rice turned out really well, a great texture with just a subtle flavor of coconut. The coconut milk did not overpower the rice at all.
Served with a stir fry chicken this was just the thing. We really liked the rice made like this.
Thanks awalde for another great recipe"
"We really liked this rice. I was afraid that the flavour of coconut might be overwhelming, but it's really not. I also topped it with toasted coconut and that added a nice touch. We had this with awalde's Recipe #446017, roast chicken and veggies. Yum! Made for PRMR recipe tag game. Thanks awalde! :)"
"Wonderful! Wonderful! I liked the idea of including toasted coconut & did just that for an absolutely great flavor combo, especially since I used brown rice rather than the white! Thanks for a great keeper recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars recipe tag]"
"Good texture and a light coconut flavor. You can't tell from my picture but I used brown rice."
"This rice came out very nice and fluffy. The coconut flavor was perfect, not too strong, not too subtle. I made it from scratch, followed the recipe, added a little extra water during cooking, and it came perfectly. Made for ZWT 7."
"Yummy, and the fact that it really simple doesn't hurt any. It was great with tonights chicken. Dh and I both loved it. Made for ZWT7, Witchin Kitchen."
"Very easy and pretty darn tasty. The leftovers were even better! Thanks for sharing, awalde!"
"I played a little fast and loose with this but this was inspiring to know I could use already cooked rice to make coconut rice. I used Trader Joe's Frozen Brown rice - it's already cooked and unsweetened coconut cream as my coconut milk that was leftover tasted tinny. I stirred them together and microwaved for about 8 minutes total - this was the perfect side dish for the Recipe #336894 I served it with and made great lunch leftovers. thanks for sharing awalde! Made for ZWT 7 for the Food.commandos"
"I used leftover basmati rice to make this, so it was easily prepared and a great accompaniment to your recipe#457840. Thanks for a lovely dinner, awalde!"
"We really enjoyed this tasty rice. It was perfect, just the right texture. It worked beautifully with recipe #457840 by Awalde. Loved the additional of the coconut milk after the rice had steamed. Really nice and creamy with a prodominent coconut flavor. Made for ZWT7 for the Witchin Kitchen."
"Wonderful. I also added some coconut flakes. Thanks Made for ZWT 2011."
"I had leftover rice to use up and this was a great way to prepare it. I followed the instructions in Step 7. I turned up the heat until almost medium in order for it to heat up faster. I served with Recipe #373672 373672. We liked the combination better than either on its own. It really worked. Made for ZWT 7."
