Superb Coconut Rice! I made the recipe as shown with only two additions. I added 2 to 3 Tablespoons of shredded coconut, in order to increase the coconut flavor as well as add a bit of sweetness. I also added about 1/4 cup of frozen baby peas. Then I cooked as instructed. I did not add the coconut as garnish since it had already been stirred into the rice itself. This turned out better than any coconut rice I have had in the past. Yum!
A little bland for my taste. Added pinch turmeric, then curry powder, then cumin - nothing seemed to help. Did cook in indicated time, though; no burning. I cut the salt by about 1/8 or 1/4 teaspoon - I find many recipes benefit from less salt. Could that have been the problem?
What about using more coconut milk, rather than the 1 C of water? Would mixture be too thick, and more prone to burning? Would a tiny bit of sugar, maybe 1/2 tsp, help.
I think this has possibilities but I'm going to tweak it. I was hoping to serve it with very spicy shrimp or chicken.
I couldn't taste a bit of coconut in this rice. That said, I still think it's delicious! Like an easy version of saffron rice. My tumeric turned the rice bright yellow. The coconut milk made it super creamy and delicious. I was really worried about not stirring or checking the rice, per Chef John's advice, because my stove tends to run really hot, but I followed the directions and it came out perfect.
Love this side dish. I wanted it to be more savory than sweet so increased the turmeric and pepper flakes a bit. Also added a handful of chopped green onions before cooking. I will definitely make again.
I had coconut rice in Jamaica more than a decade ago. I have been longing for the taste of it again. This recipe was perfect. I did sub the turmeric for Jamaican curry powder. I also added a lemongrass stalk. Amazing!
I just made it forgot the salt? It tasted bland. I guess I'll try it with the salt? Although I can't imagine not putting salt would make this taste bland. A little disappointed. It looks very pretty with the spices added as well.
