How to make coconut milk rice
First, rinse 1 cup of rice in a sieve or strainer until the water runs clear.
Make sure to break up any lumps in the coconut milk before heating.
Then, cook the rice on high heat until the mixture starts to boil.
Once it comes to a rolling boil, turn the heat down to low, and cover, while leaving a little opening on the top of the pan (so it doesn’t boil over).
Cook on low heat for 15 minutes, until rice is tender and completely steamed.
Fluff it and enjoy.
