This is a simple way of adding a little more flavour to your rice, and works really well with spicy dishes such as curries. We made it as an accompaniment to our Caribbean Spicy Prawns. You will need:
Long-grain rice – about 2 cups
2 small tins of coconut milk
2 cups water
1 cinnamon stick
1 knob of butter
The quantities above are for a large portion, so you my wish to use half the amounts. Start off by rinsing the rice thoroughly and draining.
Next, melt a large knob of butter in a pan.
Add the rice, and fry until the rice starts to turn transparent.
When cooked, remove the cinnamon stick and gently fluff up the rice with a fork.
