Recipe for Coconut Rice. Ginger and coconut flavor this exotic rice.


  • 1 cup long grain or jasmine rice
  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
  • 1/2 inch slice peeled fresh ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • chopped fresh cilantro (optional)


  1. Bring the coconut milk to a boil in a medium sized pot. Add the rice, ginger and salt. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. While waiting, heat the shredded coconut in a skillet, toasting it lightly. Remove from heat and set aside. When the rice has cooked for 20 minutes, fluff it with a fork and throw out the ginger root. Place in a serving dish and sprinkle with toasted coconut and chopped cilantro just before serving.
