Khmer Coconut Rice Recipe

The Khmer Coconut Rice Recipe offers a straightforward and convenient option for a quick and delicious meal. With just a few simple steps, this dish is perfect for busy days when you want something satisfying without the fuss.

To prepare this dish, you will need 2 cups of cooked rice, 1 1/2 cups of coconut milk or cream, ½ teaspoon of cinnamon for garnish, ½ teaspoon of curry powder, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and a dash of salt.

Begin by boiling the coconut milk, curry powder, and sugar in a pot over medium heat. Once the mixture is heated, add the cooked rice and stir until all the liquid is evaporated, ensuring that the rice is well-coated with the flavorful coconut mixture. This step infuses the rice with the rich, creamy essence of the coconut milk.

After the liquid has been absorbed, turn off the heat and add a sprinkle of cinnamon for an extra layer of flavor and a touch of warmth. This final touch enhances the aroma and taste of the dish, giving it a unique and inviting quality. Once completed, the Khmer Coconut Rice is ready to be enjoyed, offering a delightful fusion of creamy coconut and aromatic spices with the comforting simplicity of rice.
