  • Gently heat the coconut milk with the salt in a large saucepan, stirring.

  • Do not boil.

  • Add the steamed rice, stir well, cover tightly and let stand for a further 30 minutes, by which time the milk should be completely absorbed.

  • Once more spread the rice in top of steamer, bring water back to the boil and steam for 30 minutes, starting on high heat and gradually turning heat lower until in the end the water merely simmers.

  • Serve hot with meat, poultry, fish or vegetable dishes, both mild and hot.
