1 3/4 cups basmati rice
1 can coconut milk
2 cups water
Combine rice, coconut milk, and water in saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until it boils. Reduce heat and cover. Cook for about 15-20 minutes or until the water is all absorbed.
Let stand for 5-10 minutes. Fluff.
To toast coconut: Pull out a small skillet warm up on the stove add the coconut and stir until it is starting to turn brown dump into a bowl or plate. You have to watch it or it burns fast.
You can substitute the basmati rice for regular white rice, but I wouldn't suggest it. The basmati rice is amazing and does actually taste different. Also make sure to wash and soak the rice, it makes it cook so much faster!
