INGREDIENTS

Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups jasmine rice
  • 1 can (13.66 ounces) Thai Kitchen Unsweetened Coconut Milk
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 makrut lime leaf, torn in half
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Toasted flaked coconut, for garnish
  • Chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

  • 1 RINSE jasmine rice with water. Drain well. Set aside.
  • 2 BRING coconut milk, water, sugar, lime leaf and salt to boil in medium saucepan on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add rice; return to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 18 to 20 minutes or until rice is tender. Let stand 5 minutes.
  • 3 FLUFF rice with fork. Remove lime leaf pieces. Spoon rice into serving bowls. Sprinkle with toasted coconut and cilantro, if desired.
  • 4 Test Kitchen Tip: Makrut lime leaves are shiny, thick, dark green leaves that grow in doubles—as two connected leaflets. The leaves provide a refreshing lemon-lime aroma and flavor typical of Thai cuisine. To get the maximum amount of flavor when using whole fresh leaves, remove the center stem/vein and discard. Dried leaves can be used whole. Makrut lime leaves are available fresh, frozen or dried in Asian markets and online retailers.
