Kaha Bath (Yellow Rice)

Kaha Bath (Yellow Rice) created by Outta Here

We love this rice dish, but you must promise me not to lift the lid as it cooks (I know the disasterous results of that) or read the nutritional panel. A bit high in cals, but worth it occasionally!

    Delicious! I cut it down for two also, and used ground black pepper, so didn't have the problem others had with the peppercorns not rising to the top. Great with some grilled salmon. Thanks, Jan, for this keeper!

    Followed instructions, no peeking!! perfect.. I loved this, I did think, goodness, what a lot of coconut milk (cleaned me out! :D), but I loved it. I also found that not all the spices ..particularly the peppercorns did not rise to the top, so I did have to watch not to crunch one inadvertently! Though creamy, this does not at all turn mushy, the grains are fluffy and separated, and most flavoursome. DH found it a bit heavy, since I served it with curry, he would have preferred steamed rice. But then he doesn't like risotto either. For me, it was extremely good. thank you, Jan!
