This is so good! I've made horchata before but not like this version. I put it in a milk bottle and my neighbor thought it was just that and poured herself a glass. What a surprise!! Now she's into making horchata at her house. Thanks!! Rum does work in it too.-20 Oct 2010

Patience!!! Takes a while to make this but OHH is it worth it. For those having trouble straining it try placing a double layer of cheese cloth over a bowl and secure with a large rubber band. Pour puree over cheese cloth and allow to drain. Repeat process using a sieve to get the smaller particles out. It's an extra step but much easier than trying to force it through a sieve the first time and gives you a much smoother puree to finish with.-11 Apr 2011

I made this today and just tried it--delicious! I have never tried horchata, so I have no basis for comparison, but I like it a lot. My only issue was trying to strain the rice just didn't seem to be flowing through the sieve...maybe a drop at a time, but at times not even that. I finally took a flat glass pitcher lid and used that to press the top of the mixture, and then it came through. Does anyone know if there is a way to make that process easier? It did eventually work though, and it tastes great! I highly recommend adding the rum. Thanks for the great recipe!-29 May 2010

Microwave Coconut Sticky Rice With Mango

Photo by Joseph De Leo, Food Styling by Micah Marie Morton

Mango sticky rice was always a special treat for me and my siblings when we were growing up. After dinner, my mom would buy it from the street vendors who rode around on bicycles selling it in little banana leaf packages. It was an expensive dessert, so we always shared one among all five of us. Two bites each!

Chrissy and Luna love when I make mango sticky rice, but I always tell them I have to find a really good mango first. That’s essential. The little yellow ones are my favorite, but any type of mango will work. What’s important is that the mango be very ripe but not mushy.

The coconut sticky rice? That’s the easy part. Cook the sticky rice in the microwave and then mix it with the hot, salty-sweet coconut milk. The heat from the coconut milk will help it soak into the rice and make it so creamy and tender. All done. Fresh mangoes are great, but if you don’t have any, coconut sticky rice is so good with everything—spicy curries, grilled meat, even fried chicken. There’s no such thing as making too much.

This is a better version of your everyday, regular white rice. It has a nice flavor to it. We use jasmine rice, and if you follow the directions, the outcome is a delicious rice that you can fluff with a fork right before serving.

While testing this recipe, we ended up with a layer of brown, crispy rice at the bottom of the pan, and it is DELICIOUS. The rice crisps in the coconut.

My absolute favorite, creamy coconut rice made with three simple ingredients for the best side dish! This easy coconut rice recipe is ready in just under 30 minutes and is delicious paired with your favorite meals like salmon, stir frys, curries and more.


  • 2 cups jasmine white rice
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans full fat coconut milk (can also use lite coconut milk from the can)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


Combine rice, coconut milk, water and salt in a medium pot, and bring to a boil.

Recipe Notes

To make a smaller batch: simply use 1 cup rice, 1 can coconut milk, ¼ cup water, pinch of salt and that’s it!

To store: let the coconut rice cool completely before transferring it to an airtight container or bag. Store it in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days, and simply reheat it in the microwave before serving. See the full blog post for freezing instructions.

Sweet: add 1 tablespoon of sugar

Fruity: add 1 diced mango

Cilantro lime: add ¼ cup chopped cilantro + 1 lime, juiced

Turmeric ginger: add 1 teaspoon ground turmeric + ½ tablespoon freshly grated ginger (or sub ½ teaspoon ground ginger)

Cooling Coconut Rice Recipe


Note: This quantity of rice makes 3 to 4 servings, which means you will have extra to repurpose in other dishes or with another round of freshly cooked fruit or vegetables.

Coconut-Cashew Topping

  • ½ cup raw cashews, chopped
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 tablespoon fennel seeds
  • 1 tablespoon cardamom pods (for sweet)
  • 1 tablespoon coriander seeds (for savory)

Sweet Toppings

  • 1 mint tea bag or 1 teaspoon loose mint tea
  • ¾ cup boiling water
  • 2 medium pears, chopped
  • 4 Medjool dates, pitted and chopped
  • Dash ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 4 whole cloves or ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon crushed culinary-grade rose petals (optional)

Savory Toppings

  • 2 cups baby bok choy, chopped
  • 1 ½ cups celery, chopped
  • 1 cup daikon radish, cut into half moons
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 lime


Cover the rice with water in a small bowl and let soak for about 30 minutes.

Prepare the coconut-cashew topping. Add the cashews, coconut flakes, fennel, and cardamom or coriander (depending on which version you are making) to a large skillet over low heat. Toast until fragrant, 3&ndash5 minutes. Stay close, because the coconut can burn easily.

Bring the coconut water and regular water to a boil in a large saucepan. Strain the rice and rinse it 2 to 3 times until the water runs clear. Transfer to the pan with the water and add the mineral salt. Return to a boil, then reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cover.

Cook for 15&ndash18 minutes, until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat, place a paper towel over the pan, and recover with the lid for 10 minutes (this will absorb any extra water and make the rice fluffy). Uncover, and fluff with a fork.

For the sweet variety:

Prepare a cup of mint tea by adding the tea bag or leaves (in a tea ball) to a mug or small bowl with the boiling water. Let steep for 5 minutes, then discard the tea bag or leaves.

Add the pears, dates, cinnamon, cloves, and mint tea to a separate saucepan over medium heat. Cover and cook 8&ndash10 minutes, or until the pear is very soft.

To serve, place a scoop of rice and a scoop of the stewed fruit in each bowl. Garnish with a spoon of the coconut-cashew mixture, rose petals, and mint. If there is extra liquid in the pan, pour it over the bowls to moisten. Enjoy immediately while warm.

For the savory variety:

Add the bok choy, celery, and daikon radish to a large skillet with the water over medium heat. Cover and quickly steam, 3&ndash5 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft but still bright green.

To serve, place a scoop of rice and a scoop of the steamed vegetables in each bowl. Garnish with a spoon of the coconut-cashew mixture, cilantro, mint, and a squeeze of lime juice. Enjoy immediately while warm.

Sweet vs. Savory

Below are two ways to prepare your coconut rice, one sweet and one savory. By stewing the pears for the sweet version alongside pitta-balancing foods like dates, cinnamon, and cloves in a bath of mint tea, this fibrous fruit becomes lighter than in its raw state.

Similarly, steaming the green vegetables for the savory variety allows their rainbow of colors, nutrients, and subtle flavors to shine, especially after the squeeze of lime juice. It can be helpful to consume lightly cooked foods in this way even during the summer, since cooking makes them easier for our tired agni to digest.

The burst of refreshing flavor in every bite from the fresh mint or cilantro and crunchy coconut-cashew topping may be all you need to feel calm, cool, and collected as you enjoy this quick, simple ritual of nourishment.

Serve the dishes room temperature or slightly cooled if eating a hot bowl of rice is unappealing. Both sweet and savory are great for any time of day&mdashbreakfast, lunch, or dinner. Feel free to play with adding extra mix-ins to your leftovers!

Coconut Rice Ingredients:

  • Thai Jasmine Rice – long-grain rice is ideal for coconut rice. Technically you could make this recipe with other long-grain white rices, but I strongly advise using Thai jasmine rice for this recipe. The quality will vary, and some will be more naturally fragrant than others. I’ve had great success with a basic 365 Brand Organic Thai Jasmine rice(affiliate link).
  • Virgin, Expeller Pressed Coconut Oil – stirring the rice with coconut oil before cooking separates the grains during cooking, and adds fabulous flavor. Since we’re making coconut rice (and are seeking that great coconut flavor!), you’ll want to use virgin expeller-pressed coconut oil, which is naturally very fragrant and flavorful, for this recipe. Refined non-virgin coconut oil will work, but imparts little to no coconut flavor.
  • Full-Fat Coconut Milk – to make the best coconut rice, you’ll need full-fat canned coconut milk! Be sure to mix the coconut milk fully before measuring, as it is often separated in the can. I recommend Aroy-D (if you can find it), Thai Kitchen, or 365 Brand. Do not substitute this ingredient with light coconut milk (which is coconut milk diluted with water) or refrigerated coconut milks, which are packed with additional ingredients.
  • Water – this recipe uses equal parts full-fat coconut milk and water to cook the rice. This is my favorite ratio, and produces fragrant, well-textured coconut rice, which isn’t overly rich or weighed down by additional coconut milk.
  • Kosher Salt – I use Diamond Crystal brand kosher salt(affiliate link) in my kitchen (read more about why I love this brand of cooking salt). If you use other brands or varieties of salt, please note that you’ll need to adjust the quantity to account for varying densities.

Escape to Malaysia with this recipe for prawn sambal with coconut rice

I enjoy cooking at home, especially if there is a special occasion or a family gathering. In our home, we believe food brings family and friends together. My wife and children are all good cooks. They are passionate about food, and love to try new flavours and dishes.

I picked this dish to share my recipe for because prawn sambal was cooked regularly in our home when I was a child. Nasi lemak (coconut rice) is Malaysia’s national dish. It is served with prawn sambal, a boiled egg and many more condiments.

When I cook coconut rice and prawn sambal, it always brings back memories of my childhood, and in more recent years, of our family holidays in Malaysia.

Prawn sambal with coconut rice


For the prawn sambal
8 shallots, peeled
4 cloves garlic, peeled
2 fresh lemongrass stalks (white part only), chopped
3-5 red chillies
1 tsp dried ground turmeric
2 tbsp fresh ginger (a thumb-sized piece)
4 kaffir lime leaves, thinly chopped (if you don’t have them, use the grated zest of a lime)
6 tbsp vegetable oil (plus more if needed)
2 tbsp tamarind paste
3 tsp brown sugar
1 tbsp Thai fish sauce
3 tsp light soy sauce
400g large Dublin Bay prawns, peeled and deveined
100g green beans, chopped
200ml water (plus more if needed)
Lime wedges, fresh coriander or julienned kaffir lime leaves as a garnish


Irish Times Food&Drink Club

For the coconut rice (nasi lemak)
250g basmati rice
150ml coconut milk
150ml chicken stock
125ml water
2 pandanus leaves (optional)
Thumb-size piece of ginger (crushed)

1. Add the shallots, garlic, ginger, turmeric, lemongrass, chillies and two kaffir limes leaves to a blender or food processor with two tablespoons of vegetable oil. Blend until smooth. Add additional oil in small amounts if the ingredients are not blending well.

2. Heat two tablespoons of vegetable oil to a pan or wok over medium heat. Add the paste and sauté for about five to seven minutes until it becomes aromatic. Do not burn as the paste may become bitter.

3. Add the prawns and coat thoroughly with the paste.

4. Squeeze the remaining two kaffir lime leaves in your palm to release the flavour and add to the pan.

5. Add the tamarind paste, sugar, fish sauce, soy sauce and the beans. Add enough water or stock to create a rich sauce, starting with 10ml and adding more if needed. The sauce should be the consistency of a thick ketchup.

6. Allow the dish to continue to simmer for three to five minutes until the prawns are pink and cooked through.

7. Serve with rice on the side, and garnish with lime wedges, fresh coriander and julienned kaffir lime leaves (optional).

8. Cooking the rice: Put all ingredients into a saucepan and bring it to a boil then reduced the heat to its lowest, put a lid on the pot and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid absorbed.
