"Delicious sweet coconut rice that can be thrown in a rice cooker or done on the stove. This is great when paired with a Thai green curry or stir-fry! Ideally, make this with either jasmine rice or long-grain white rice."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 cups
long-grain white rice
1 (14 ounce) can
1 1/4 cups
white sugar, or more to taste
shredded coconut, or to taste
This was reminiscent of rice pudding for me because of the creaminess. I used palm sugar because I don't cook with white sugar(personal preference). 1 tsp was enough. Shredded coconut added a welcomed texture. I'll make this again. Thanks Melucy.
Okay, but not a strong coconut taste. Made this in my rice cooker. I used the stated amount of sugar. I found that if I added some sugar on my rice at the table it bought out the coconut taste more. Not a bad recipe by any means, but I would want to play with it some more to suite our tastes. My teen didn't like it at all. A lot leftover.
We LOVED this! I only used the teaspoon of sugar called for b/c I didn't want it too sweet, and that was perfect, so if you want it SWEET def add more sugar. I liked the addition of the coconut sprinkled on top, which also gave some sweetness to the rice, so keep that in mind as well if you plan on using it. I added some salt, but that was per my own preference. Oh, and I used Jasmine rice, which was wonderful in this. I would def be making this again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
Amazing! My boyfriend made this last night with caramelized baked chicken (another wonderful recipe on here). It went perfect with it! I loved the sweetness of this rice. It is the right amount of sweet. Delicious!
Great and easy to make and tastes great too
EXCELLENT recipe - only thing I added was salt. I like sweet rice, so I used two tsp of sugar. Added the coconut just before serving and it was terrific. We served it as a side dish with BBQ brisket, steamed broccoli and a green salad. Will make it with chicken curry next time. Two thumbs up!
Delicious! I added a pinch of salt but otherwise didn't change a thing. The coconut flakes added some nice texture. I served it with fajitas that were pretty spicy and this rice added a nice cooling effect. Family loved it. Would definitely make it again!
Fabulous! Just like in the restaurants. I used a rice cooker instead of stovetop and it turned out perfect.
