This might be my new favourite way of making rice. I made it on Saturday and what wasn’t demolished that night was eaten by the Mascot on Sunday. On Monday, he asked me to make it again. And this is a kid who would’ve gagged at the mere suggestion of coconut a week ago.
It’s a Jaime Oliver “recipe”, stolen from his 15 minute meals show. Jaime’s name for it is Sticky Rice, but that is a little misleading. Ours wasn’t sticky in the least… but it was fluffy and fragrant and absolutely, completely addictive. I thought that there would be way too much for just the three of us, but everyone had seconds.
Are you ready for this? Its simplicity will blow. your. mind.
In a rice cooker, combine: 1 can reduced-fat coconut milk (well-shaken), 1 can water, 1 can Basmati rice. Cover and cook.
That’s it. Seriously.
Note: yes, you can make this in a pot on the stove, tightly covered, but why don’t you have a rice cooker?
