Big Bull Rice

Creamy Coconut Rice


Step by Step Procedure

Step 1

Rinse the rice thoroughly under cold water and set it aside to drain. 

Step 2

In a large saucepan, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until it becomes translucent, about 3-4 minutes. 

Step 3

Stir in the minced garlic and sauté for another 1-2 minutes until fragrant. 

Step 4

Add the diced red and green bell peppers. Sauté for about 3-4 minutes until they begin to soften. 

Step 5

Stir in the rice and sauté for 2-3 minutes until the rice is lightly toasted. 

Step 6

Add the coconut milk, water, curry powder, turmeric, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine. 

Step 7

Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover the saucepan, and simmer for 15-18 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed. Be sure to check and stir occasionally to prevent sticking. 

Step 8

About 5 minutes before the rice is done, add the frozen peas. Stir them into the rice. 

Step 9

Once the rice is cooked and the peas are heated through, remove the saucepan from the heat. 

Step 10

Fluff the rice with a fork and garnish with fresh cilantro if desired. 

  • You can customize this recipe by adding vegetables like carrots or broccoli. 
  • For a touch of heat, add a pinch of red pepper flakes. 
  • Serve creamy coconut rice as a side dish or with grilled chicken or shrimp for a satisfying meal. 
  • Leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated with a splash of coconut milk to maintain their creaminess.
