Coconut Rice FAQ
I definitely recommend using full fat coconut milk for this rice recipe. It’s got that creamy flavor that brings life to the recipe, and is also a healthy fat!
This recipe is designed so that the coconut milk will not burn, if you follow it as written. The high fat content prevents burning!
Make sure to not overcook your rice to avoid burning. Also, feel free to double batch so there is more in the instant pot. This will help the rice to all cook evenly and prevent burning.
I recommend using jasmine rice for this recipe. It cooks evenly and quickly and the soft and sticky texture of it when it’s cooked just can’t be beat, in my opinion!
