Total time 20 mins
Yield 8 servings
Coconut and kaffir lime are high on the list of favorite flavors in Sera Pelle's household. She has a kaffir lime tree on the balcony right off the kitchen and uses the leaves in everything, from vegetable stews to Thai-style soups.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 1/2 cups jasmine rice, rinsed
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves

How to Make It

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the water, coconut milk and salt. Add the rinsed rice and lime leaves and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat for 12 minutes. Keeping the pan covered, turn off the heat and let the rice stand for 5 minutes. Uncover and fluff the rice. Discard the lime leaves and serve.
