Servings: 6 people
- 1/4 cup coconut flakes unsweetened
- 2 cups Jasmine rice
- 1 13.5 oz. can of coconut milk
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 green onion chopped
In a pan over medium heat, add coconut flakes. Cook, stirring regularly, for about 3 to 5 minutes or until lightly browned and aromatic. Immediately remove from pan and set aside.
Under running water, rinse rice a few times until water runs mostly clear. Drain well.
In a pot with tight-fitting lid (make sure it's big enough to allow for the "expanding" of rice when cooked), combine rice, coconut milk, water and salt. Stir gently to disperse coconut milk.
Over medium heat, bring to a boil uncovered. Lower heat, cover and continue to cook for about 15 to 20 minutes or until rice is tender. With a fork, gently fluff rice and transfer to a serving platter. Top with green onions and toasted coconut. Serve hot.
