Coconut rice

by Zoe Adjonyoh

A simple idea for jazzing up a staple side


300g uncooked rice
350-400ml coconut milk


Wash the rice at least three times to remove starch

Cover with 200-250ml water (enough to cover the rice), stir in 1 tsp salt, then place on a medium heat for 5 mins until the water is absorbed. Gradually add the coconut milk, stirring it in, then cook for a further 8-10 mins, until moist but there is no liquid visible.

Remove from heat and allow to stand with a lid on for a few minutes. Fluff with fork then serve.
