Coconut Lime Rice

Super Easy Coconut Lime Rice

The first time I fell in love with Coconut + Lime pairing was thanks to Bath & Bodyworks. Some beautiful shower gel, zesty and a perfect way to start the morning.

Now, I am more likely to be making my coconut lime rice than extolling the virtues of artificial fragrances. So here it is – my recipe for this zest, tasty rice dish, perfect with any number of hot curries!

Serves 6.

Ingredients for Coconut Lime Rice:

  • 2 ½ Cups Basmati Rice
  • 2 Cups of Coconut Milk
  • 1 ¾ Cup water
  • Juice and zest of 4 Limes
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • Salt
  • Coriander leaves (optional)

Method for Coconut Lime Rice:

  1. Rinse the rice until water runs clear. About 6-8 times.
  2. Soak rice in water, for at least 30 minutes. I normally do it for an hour.
  3. Heat oil in pot. Saute the rice for a minute.
  4. Pour in water, coconut milk and lime juice into the pot. Add some salt to taste.
  5. Bring to a boil, reduce flame to a simmer, cover and cook for 20 minutes.
  6. Fluff rice with a fork, cover and keep for about 10 minutes before serving.
  7. Add coriander and lime zest as a garnish and you’re ready to eat!

Try it with my beautiful Beef Short Ribs Curry – it’s the perfect zesty match to the rich curry!
