If you can only find regular coconut milk, buy 2 cans and use the thick cream that's floating at the top. The coconut cream will caramelize during cooking, leaving sweet brown flecks in the rice.

How to Make Coconut Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. Rinse rice in a large bowl with cool water until water runs clear. Drain rice.
  2. Combine rice, coconut cream, sugar, salt, and 2 cups water in a medium saucepan. Bring just to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar, then cover and reduce heat to low. (Alternatively, cook rice in an electric rice steamer.) Cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 40-45 minutes.
  3. Fluff rice with a fork; cover and let sit for 20 minutes.
