This Coconut Lime Jasmine Rice will be showing up in a lot of the Thai recipes I share over the next few weeks! It’s my go-to rice to pair with curries because it’s sweet, sour, nutty flavors pair well with spicy Thai dishes.

Coconut Lime Jasmine Rice

What is Jasmine Rice?

 

Jasmine rice is a long-grained rice grown in Southeast Asia that is prominent in Thai cooking. It has a nutty aroma and a starchy texture. The starch makes it a sticky rice, which is great for eating with chopsticks and soaking up curries.

 

How to Make Coconut Lime Jasmine Rice

 

This rice comes together in just about 30 minutes. Start by rinsing the rice, then add it to a heavy bottomed sauce pan. Pour in one part water and one part coconut milk, you’ll cook the rice in coconut milk to give it a subtle coconut flavor. Season with salt and then bring to a rapid boil. Reduce the heat to a low simmer and cover for 20 minutes. When the rice is done, fluff it with a fork and add lime juice, zest and ground coriander. Serve the rice warm as a side dish. Garnish with fresh cilantro right before serving.
