Coconut Basmati Rice

1 3/4 cups basmati rice
1 can coconut milk
2 cups water
toasted coconut

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!
