A simple and tasty side dish that can really dress up your dinner! We serve coconut rice usually with Som Tum and BBQ chicken, but you can certainly try it out with other dishes. *Tip: It goes particularly well with it something that has an element of acidity, such as Tom Yum Goong.

Thank you for posting this recipe. It looks easy and delicious. I'm tempted to add some lime juice and zest, and green onions at the end.

Lovely! I meant the cook and the recipe!

Can I use brown rice?

grayson75 says:

nice! I like pandan leaf in this rice dish it gives a unique flavor. I don't add much salt while cooking because the coconut milk enhances the salt flavour and can be over powering. I cook rice in saucepan on gas stove. The trick to not burning bottom is to stir once after cooking for about 10 minutes and adding a little bit extra fluid if looking to dry. If you feel the rice might still burn at bottom, turn the heat off but leave the lid on to continue the steaming process for another 5 minutes. You don't want to stir too much because rice can get mashy. I love this rice with chicken rendang.

slama lama says:

XLR X says:

Awesome recipe! I will be doing this, but i'm gonna add lime leaves. My mom is OBSESSED with coconut rice… it scares me lol.

Garry Hastie says:

God you're great for tv/www. You look great and sound fantastic.ok so constructive criticism, don't give so many options 'maybe do this if you want'. Keep it simple for your loyal fan base. Give them something exact to follow and offer alternatives at the end of the film if you have to. You are the professional chef, most of your fan base will be 'home cooks' that are looking for strong instruction.
