Coconut Rice

This is a very nice mild and creamy dish to serve with spicy meats and curries.

  • Cook Time:20 minutes
  • Prep Time:5 minutes
  • Level of Difficulty:medium


1 1/2 cups (375 mL) Thai Kitchen® Jasmine Rice

1 can (400 mL) Thai Kitchen® Coconut Milk

1 1/4 (300 mL) cups water

1 teaspoon (5 mL) sugar

1 kaffir lime leaf, torn in half

Pinch salt

Toasted coconut and chopped fresh cilantro (optional)


RINSE jasmine rice with water. Drain well; set aside.

BRING coconut milk, 1 1/4 cups (300 mL) water, sugar, kaffir lime leaf and salt to boil in medium saucepan on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add rice; return to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 18 to 20 minutes or until rice is tender. Let stand 5 minutes.

FLUFF rice with fork. Remove kaffir lime leaf pieces. Spoon rice into serving bowl. Sprinkle with coconut and cilantro, if desired.


Thai Kitchen Tip: Kaffir lime leaves provide a lemon-lime fragrance to many Thai dishes. They are available fresh, frozen or dried in Asian markets. If unavailable, omit kaffir lime leaf from recipe.
