Easy and Quick Jasmine Jasmati Rice With Coconut Milk

"We enjoy this very much-I like the Jasmati brand ( american Jasmine) since you don't have to rinse the rice. You can also buy fresh ginger ( inexpensive) -peel it, cut it into small chunks then freeze. You can use the frozen ginger as you need it!"

    Almost like a dessert! I added some cayenne pepper for a little more kick and then topped with a bit of honey to bring out the sweet flavors for a quick snack. So good. Will be pairing with a honey garlic chicken meal later and I think it's just enough!

    I found my rice to not have much flavor and was puzzled since it smelled so good while putting it together. However, it was easy and did spice up plain Jasmine rice. I think it would be better with some toasted coconut flakes thrown in while cooking and chopped garlic. The boyfriend thought it was a "4."

    Made for All New Zaar Cookbooks Tag! This was good, but it wasn't over the top. DD liked it much better than DH & I.

    Loved this rice along with a duck recipe that I had with it, that was spicy! The rice was flavored nicely with the coconut. I too caramelized an onion and added garlic for more flavor and the result was great! I added peas and carrots to my rice to add some veggies in. Great rice dish!

    This is a great coconut flavored rice! I cut out the sugar and opted to use a minced carmelized onion for the sweetness, color and texture. I also used 3 cloves of sauteed garlic to the mix. I then added the remaining ingredients and cooked as directed. This was fantastic alongside Vietnamese grilled chicken and an asian cucumber salad. I look forward to coupling it with other dishes as well.


Hello fellow cooks-I am on OBGYN doctor and I am new to this website. . I love RecipeZaar since there are so many, easy, delicious, tested recipes. Between myself and my boyfriend, we have 5 children so there is always someone hungry-the family is so happy about the new, freshly cooked foods that have been gracing our table as of late. Gardening- here in south florida we have lots of tropical fruit trees - is another hobby that I enjoy. We love scuba diving too. Recently, I did a tandem parachute jump.
