Creamy Coconut Rice Recipe

Creamy Coconut Rice

Makes enough Creamy Coconut Rice for 4 people

I still remember the first time I ever tried coconut rice, it was on a long flight on the way back from a trip to the UK. I thought to myself “OMG I have to learn to make this”. Over time I’ve adjusted the measurements and I believe I’ve come up with the best creamy coconut rice to accompany any curry, like Thai Red Curry or even our Quick Chicken Curry or Chicken Rendang.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of basmati rice, rinsed well
  • 2 1/2 cups of water
  • 1 400g tin coconut cream
  • 3 cm piece of ginger sliced
  • 1 stick lemongrass, bashed and cut into pieces
  • 1 tsp salt

Method:

  1. Place the rinsed rice into a rice cooker along with the water, coconut cream, lemongrass, ginger and salt and turn your rice cooker on and start cooking.
  2. Stir every 5-10 minutes till done. Discard the ginger. Serve with curry or it would make a great accompaniment to any dish with spice!

Juicy Chicken Schnitzels

Makes 4 Chicken Schnitzels

For as long as I can remember chicken schnitzels have been an absolute family favourite in my household. My mother usually makes this with Crumb in One premade breadcrumb mix available here in Australia. So if you can buy prepacked Crumb in one in your local shop then go ahead and use them! Oh, and the leftover egg and bread crumbs can be used to make my delicious crumb cakes!
