Easy and Irresistable Coconut Rice

Coconut rice is a delightful dish that brings the exotic flavors of coconut and fragrant rice together in a harmonious marriage of taste and texture. It's also surprisingly easy to make! In this blog, we'll explore the step-by-step process of creating the perfect coconut rice that will leave your taste buds craving for more.


1 cup rice (basmati or jasmine)
1 cup of embe Organic Coconut Milk
1 cup of water
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of shredded coconut (optional, for added texture)
Fresh cilantro or parsley for garnish


  1. Rinse the Rice: Start by rinsing the rice under cold water until the water runs clear. This helps remove excess starch and prevents the rice from becoming too sticky during cooking.

  2. Combine Rice and Coconut Milk: In a saucepan, combine the rinsed rice, coconut milk, and water. Stir in the salt and shredded coconut if you're using it. The coconut oil enhances the richness of the dish, while the shredded coconut adds a delightful texture.

  3. Bring to a Boil: Place the saucepan over medium-high heat and bring the mixture to a boil. Stir occasionally to ensure the coconut milk is evenly distributed.

  4. Simmer and Cover: Once the mixture reaches a boil, reduce the heat to low, cover the saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, and let it simmer. Allow the rice to absorb the flavors of the coconut milk and become tender. This should take about 15-20 minutes.

  5. Fluff the Rice: After the rice has cooked, fluff it with a fork to separate the grains. This step ensures a light and fluffy texture for your coconut rice.

  6. Garnish and Serve: Transfer the coconut rice to a serving dish, and garnish with fresh cilantro or parsley for a burst of color and added freshness. The vibrant green herbs complement the creamy coconut flavor beautifully.

  7. Serve and Enjoy: Coconut rice pairs well with a variety of dishes, from curries to grilled seafood or vegetables. Serve it as a side dish or as the main attraction on your dinner table. The versatility of coconut rice makes it a crowd-pleaser for any occasion.
