About this Recipe

Coconut rice is a classic Thai dish. It is aromatic, flavorful, and now easier than ever to make in Brava. This rice makes a great accompaniment to Thai-style dishes but would also pair well with any curries or stews. You could even serve this with fresh fruit as dessert (if doing so, double the amount of sugar in the recipe). Chef Erin highly recommends using Jasmine rice in this recipe as this will give you the best results.
