  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
  • 1 ¼ cups water
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar, or more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon shredded coconut, or to taste(Optional)
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Stir rice, coconut milk, and water together in a saucepan. Dissolve sugar into the liquid.


  • Step 2

    Bring the mixture to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, place a cover on the saucepan, and simmer until the majority of the liquid has been absorbed by the rice, 15 to 20 minutes. Leaving saucepan on the burner, turn heat off and let rice steam until sticky, about 5 to 10 minutes more.Garnish with shredded coconut.

  • Cook's Note:

    Check liquid for sweetness before cooking. I dip a spoon in to taste the liquid and make sure it’s sweet enough.

    If you are nuts for coconut like me, add the shredded coconut as a garnish prior to serving.
