Servings: 10
Preparation Time: 3 hours

  • 1 1/2 cups of organic short-grain rice
  • 1 teaspoon organic whole cloves
  • 2-3 organic cinnamon sticks
  • 5 – 2 inch pieces organic fresh ginger root
  • 4 cups water
  • 16 oz. of organic coconut cream concentrate
  • 1/2 cup organic California raisins
  • 13-14 oz. organic coconut milk*

1. Wash rice and soak in water to cover for 2 hours.

2. Add spices (cloves, cinnamon, peeled & cut ginger) to a large pot with 3 cups of water and bring to a boil. Simmer 15-20 min. Remove spices from pot.

3. Add 1 cup of water, drained rice, coconut cream concentrate and raisins and cook over low heat for 15-20 min. or until most of the liquid is absorbed, without stirring.

4. Add coconut milk and cook 20-30 min over low heat. Continue to stir the rice every 10 minutes or so to keep it from sticking to the bottom of the pot.

5. Spoon rice into a flat serving platter or individual containers and allow to cool at room temperature. Sprinkle ground cinnamon on top. Serve it warm or cold.

* For the freshest coconut milk make homemade coconut milk. (See video at this link.)
