what you need

3 cups jasmine rice

2 cups coconut milk

1 cup water


3 garlic cloves, finely diced

1/2 small onion, diced

1 large carrot, diced into cubes

1/3 cup frozen peas

3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce

veg oil

3 eggs



Put rice, coconut milk, water and salt in a pan and cook over medium low heat. Fluff rice with fork as it cooks. When all the moisture has evaporated, place foil oven pan and cover with lid. Cook rice until it reaches desired consistency. Stir rice with only fork. Transfer rice into a bowl after it’s done cooking and put it in the refrigerator for at least 2 hrs or until rice becomes cold (overnight if you have the time). It is possible that you'll need less or more water/milk to cook rice, know your rice and how much moisture it requires to cook and adjust the ratio to 2 parts coconut milk, 1 part water.

Beat eggs and set aside. Meanwhile heat 1 tbs of oil in a wok/non stick pan and add the egg over medium high heat. Fry egg until golden on both sides then remove from skillet, chop roughly and set aside. In the same skillet, add 1 tbs of veg oil and allow to heat up. Add diced carrot and onion and cook until onion is soft then add the garlic. Fry until the garlic becomes fragrant then add fried eggs. Stir and add the cold rice. Add the soy sauce, stir, taste and adjust salt. Add frozen peas, stir to combine then turn off heat.

Your coconut fried rice is ready.
