This is a 'fast and easy' recipe. I used full fat coconut milk as that is what I had on hand. The rice turned out nice and creamy which we love. I do think that it would benefit this dish to have some fresh ginger, garlic or chili (or all of it) as it is quite bland but has wonderful texture. Will be making again for sure! Thanks for sharing Karen! Made for Pick Me! tag game.
