Food Sorcery Coconut Rice

Gently coconutty sticky rice dish that you can serve on the side of spicy dishes to neutralise the chilli burn! 

Ingredients -serves 4-6

This uses as whole can of coconut milk

  • . 1 can coconut milk (400ml)
  • . 400 ml water
  • . Salt – 1 tablespoon
  • . Sugar – 3 tablespoon
  • . Pandan Leaf (if you find, use lemon grass or ginger)
  • . Rice – 450g Jasmine Rice (Thai fragrant rice)

 

Method

  1. 1. Save half the coconut milk, and pour the remaining milk into a measuring jug.  Dilute the coconut milk with water so you have 600ml total.
  2. 2. Put the diluted milk into a pan with the sugar, salt and pandan leaf, stir to dissolve the sugar then bring to the boil.  If you don’t dissolve the sugar, it will burn on the bottom.
  3. 3. While coming to boil, rinse the rice in cold water in a sieve.
  4. 4. Add the rice to the boiling milk, cover with lid and reduce temperature to low.
  5. 5. After 5 minutes add the set aside coconut milk
  6. 6. Stir occasionally, you don’t want it to stick to the bottom – it will take about 15 minutes to cook and the rice will be soft and dry.  Remove from heat and allow to rest. 

Lemongrass Posset

This is an Italian classic, and is great for a dinner party – as it can be made in the morning.

You could crush up biscuits of your choice and put in the bottom of the glass.  A classic Italian version would be an amaretti and serve a glass of amaretto on the side!

Ingredients: Serves 2

  • ·      300ml of double cream
  • ·      60g caster sugar
  • ·      1 stick of lemongrass
 
 
 
 
 
 

Method

  1. 1. Chop the lemon
  2. 2. Bring the cream and sugar to the boil (careful it should just boil but not boil over). Once you see it boil – stay there and boil for exactly 3 minutes.
  3. 3. Take the pan off the heat and stir in the lemongrass
  4. 4. Strain this into a jug and leave to cool for 20minutes.
  5. 5. If you wish to put a crumbled biscuit in the bottom of the receptacle – this is the time to do it. If not gently pour the cream into the glasses.
