23 Now you know the basic elements of South Asian spices. Please try to design a recipe which has the spirit of south Asian food.

24 Example: Thai Coconut Rice INGREDIENTS: SERVES 4 2 cups Thai jasmine-scented rice 2 cups thin coconut milk 1 3/4 cups water 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. canola or other vegetable oil Optional: 1 tsp. brown sugar Optional: 1 tsp. coconut flavoring Optional Garnish: 2 Tbsp. dry shredded coconut

25 PREPARATION: Rub oil over the bottom of a deep-sided pot. Place rice, coconut milk, water, and salt in the pot. Place pot on the stove over medium to high heat and stir well. Add the sugar and flavoring, if using. Continue to stir occasionally until the coconut milk & water come to a bubbling boil. Once the rice has begun to bubble, stop stirring. Turn down the heat to medium-low (around 2.5 on the dial). Place lid askew on the pot, so that it is at least 3/4 covered.

26 Allow to simmer in this way for 15-20 minutes, or until rice has absorbed most of the coconut-water. Now turn off the heat, but leave the pot on the burner. Cover the pot tightly with the lid and allow to sit 5-10 minutes, or until the rest of your dinner is ready. When ready to eat, remove the lid and “fluff” rice with a fork or chopsticks, gently loosening it in the pot. The rice is now ready to eat.
