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.
