Do you find that the coconut rice served at Dooney’s Kitchen gives you the most pleasure every time you eat it? If this is the case, you should know how to make coconut rice at home on your own if you plan to do so. This post will take you step-by-step through everything and explain everything in great detail. This page has a detailed tutorial that tells you not only what you need to make the dish, but also how to put it together and cook it.
Rinse the rice in a fine mesh strainer
A large pot should be filled with rice, enough water to cover the rice, and a pinch of salt. The pot should then be set over high heat and brought to a boil. The lid should be on the pot the whole time it is cooking. It’s important that all of the rice is under the water. As soon as the water starts to boil, you should add the rice to the pot and stir it often with a wooden spoon until the rice has soaked up most of the water. Keep going this way until all of the cooking liquid has been soaked up by the rice. After turning the heat down low and covering the pot, wait until the liquid inside is simmering before taking off the lid. Rice needs to cook for 20 minutes or until all of the liquid is absorbed, whichever comes first. Rice should be cooked until all of the water has been absorbed. The best way to cook rice is in a rice cooker. Before you serve the rice, fluff it with a fork to make sure the flavor gets into every grain.
In a medium saucepan, bring the water, coconut milk, and salt to a boil
Bring the water, coconut milk, and salt to a full boil in a cooking pot that is about the size of a soup pot. After the water comes to a rolling boil, carefully put the rice in the pot and cover it right away with a lid that fits. Cook for another 15 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed, whichever comes first. Keep cooking until both of these things have happened. After you take it off the heat, let it sit for another ten minutes before you serve it.
Add the rice and stir to combine
- Put the rice in a bowl and cover it with enough ice water to cover it completely. It should soak for about a minute or until the water becomes clear, whichever comes first.
- Rinse the rice and put it in the cooking pot. Then, add three cups of liquid to the cooking pot (chicken stock, vegetable broth, or water). After adding salt to taste and either two tablespoons of butter or two tablespoons of oil, you can move on to the next step. The liquid in the covered saucepan must be brought to a boil by putting the saucepan over high heat with the lid still on. Keep cooking the mixture over low heat until it is soft and has soaked up all of the liquid, or until it is the consistency you want (about 20-25 minutes). Make sure there is enough liquid in the bottom of the pan and stir it every so often to keep the food from sticking to the bottom and burning. You can reach this goal by making sure that there is enough liquid in the bottom of the pan.
- Take the dish off the heat and let it sit, covered, for 10 minutes. Then, remove the lid and fluff it with a fork, and serve as soon as possible!
Reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for 18 minutes
Put a big pot of water on the burner and turn up the heat to its highest setting. Before putting the rice in water that is already boiling, it needs to be washed well under lukewarm, running water. After the rice has been added, the water needs to be brought back to a boil. After the first 8 minutes, turn the heat down to low and cook with the lid on for another 18 minutes. Once the heat has been turned off and the food has been left alone for five minutes, take it out of the pot with a slotted spoon. This step of the process should be done after the heat has been turned off. After fluffing the mixture with a fork, you should add either three tablespoons of melted butter or three tablespoons of melted coconut oil. Once the butter or oil has melted, you should do this. Serve right away, or put it in a container with a tight-fitting lid or a bag that can be sealed and stored in the fridge or freezer until you’re ready to use it. Either of these things will work until you’re ready to use it.
Remove the pan from the heat and let it sit, covered, for 5 minutes
Put the salt and water in a pot, turn the heat up high enough to bring it to a boil, and then turn it down low enough to simmer for a few minutes. After adding the brown rice to the dish, the heat should be turned down to a low simmer and the lid should be put on top. Rice should be cooked for about 40 minutes, or until all of the liquid is absorbed, whichever comes first. Rice should be cooked until it has soaked up all of the liquid. After stirring the coconut milk into the mixture with a spoon, keep it simmering over low heat for another ten minutes, stirring it every now and then. When it’s at the right temperature, take it off the heat and cover it with aluminum foil until you’re ready to serve it.
Fluff the rice with a fork, then stir in the lime juice and cilantro
Fill a bowl with water and put the rice in it. Rinse the rice in the water until the water is clear. There should be more than one time when this is done. Dissolve one tablespoon of salt in the water that is already in the pan with the rice. Then, put the pot on the stove over medium-high heat and bring the ingredients to a simmer. Keep cooking at low heat with the lid on until all of the water has been soaked up. Give it a little fluff with a fork after you take it off the heat, then cover it and set it aside for five minutes. When the dish is ready to be served, be sure to carefully mix the lime juice, cilantro, and butter (or ghee).
