"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."

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.
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. :)
