  • 2 cups high quality coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp palm sugar

  1. Rinse the rice several times under cold water. Then soak for several hours (overnight is best) ensuring the rice is covered by 1-2 inches of water

  2. Put a large pot of water on to boil

  3. Either place rice in cheesecloth in a bamboo steamer or in a sieve covered with a tea towel and pot lid. Place steamer on top of pot with boiling water.

  4. Steam rice for approximately 30 minutes or until soft and slightly translucent

  5. In a saucepan, on low heat, combine the coconut milk, palm sugar and salt. Stir until dissolved.

  6. Transfer cooked rice into a large bowl. Pour 3/4 of the coconut sauce into the bowl. Allow the rice to soak up the sauce (about 5 minutes). Then stir the rice once.
