Bored of having the same old steamed white rice, I made this Pandan rice to go with a spicy chicken stew and some crunchy pickled cucumber and pineapple salad. It went down a treat! Yes it was green rice but that makes it even more exciting doesn't it?! If you cant find the Pandan, you can always omit it and you will have yourself a pot of coconut rice, which is equally yummy!
All you need is:
2 cups of Basmati rice - washed
2 3/4 cups of Coconut milk - i used the canned milk; if you can get fresh coconut milk, then please use that!
2 drops of Pandan essence - Or the leaves if you can get it
1/2 teaspoon Ginger - minced
1 Lemon grass - bruised
5 black peppercorns
Salt and pepper to taste
1) All all the ingredients into a rice cooker, mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste and cook.
2) EAT! :p
