More information & tips
1) To ensure that you do not get a soggy dish, ensure the rice is fully drained after washing so that the coconut milk measurements for cooking are not off balanced.
2) The amount of water/coconut milk added to cook the rice will affect the end result. Too much water/coconut milk will result in a sticky rice but too little will result in uncooked rice. The secret for a perfect textured grains is to have the right amount of coconut milk. The ratio of rice to liquid is usually 1:2. However, you can experiment with the type of rice you have and your personal preference.
Use the same container for measuring the rice and water.
3) Washing the rice ensures that most of the starch (and other yuck) is washed away therefore causes less sticking of the cooked grains.
4) The type of rice will affect the end results e.g Some rice like pudding rice is meant for a sticky texture when cooked. Basmati rice is best for single grained when cooked. The choice is yours for this recipe.
