long grain rice, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups
fresh ginger root
Good recipe, I followed it exactly the first time except I used basmati instead of long grain rice.
The second time I made it I used 2 cups coconut milk and 1/4 c water and added a little more ginger and again used basmati rice (it doesn't take as long to cook). It's a keeper. Guests asked for the recipe too! Thanks
The main problem with this recipe is that the liquid-to-rice measurements are off. I'm amazed that it got so many good reviews considering that there is either half as much liquid or twice as much rice as needed for it to turn out. I adjusted my liquids and followed the rest of the recipe. The flavors are good - I like the curry and ginger, but also thought it could use a little sweetness and/or more coconut flavor. Thanks!
My Husband and I enjoyed this very much! We added more water than the recipe called for, found the rice was not cooking quite right! Flavour was EXCELLENT!
I added cashews and peas to this recipe and garnished with toasted coconut when it was done.. it was a big hit!
Depending of the type of rice, the amounts of water and coconut milk have to be changed; anyhow, maintaining the proportion of 2 parts of coconut milk to 1 part of water, all in my family loved the result. And that without the green garnish shown in the picture.
I've made this recipe several times over the past few years, always serving it with the "Lamb Masala" recipe I found on this site. They go very well together, as they both include coconut milk and curry. This rice is very nice with Indian food. It does, however, require additional water during cooking.
Bland, and liquid ration off for sure - so I tried to adjust - used much less water, more coconut milk (14 oz was in the can) and less rice to intensify the coconut flavor - also used ginger paste rather than fresh. I chose to try this recipe because of the rating and a lot of people had tried it - but advise to look for another that has more flavor, or just stick with plain white rice.
Wonderful but I omitted the ginger root. This was a great new way to make rice and it indeed gives any dish an exotic flavor. I served with a chicken dish named "pollo encebollado" and we thought we were eating a dish from a far away land....
