The Lazy People Recipe; Simple Coconut Rice | FOODSTANTLY

If you’re sick of regular plain ole rice, then you need to try out this easy coconut rice. It’s slightly creamy and goes perfectly with a good curry and some naan bread.

The instructions for this recipe are for doing it over the stove, but you can do the same recipe for in a rice cooker. This method is perfect for anyone who prefers the easier way of cooking rice.






  • 1 cup long grain rice

  • 1 & 1/4 cups water

  • 1 cup coconut cream

  • 1/4 tsp. salt


Over the Stove

  • Place the rice, water, coconut cream and salt into a saucepan and bring to the boil.

  • Once at the boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for 15 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.

  • Allow stand covered for 10 minutes.

  • Use a fork or spoon to fluff the rice up.

  • Serve & Enjoy

Rice Cooker

  • Place the rice, water, coconut cream and salt into a rice cooker and place the lid on.

  • Switch to cook and wait until it switches to “keep warm” or off.

  • Allow sitting for 5-10 minutes.

  • Use a spoon or fork to fluff the rice up.

  • Serve & Enjoy

Cooking Tips:

  • Some varieties of rice may need more liquid for this to cook correctly. Be sure to check the packet for a ratio of how much liquid to rice there should be and adjust accordingly.

  • If you don’t need the rice straight away, then leave the lid on as it will keep warm for up to about an hour.

  • You can add extra flavorings such as grated ginger, nutmeg or even cinnamon for a slightly different tasting coconut rice.

  • You’re able to use coconut milk instead of coconut cream, and it will give you less creamy rice.

  • If you absolutely love the taste of coconut then be sure to add 2-3 Tbsp. of shredded coconut for the ultimate coconut flavor.
