Easy Coconut Rice with Peas


  • 2 cups of basmati rice, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 can (approx. 13-15 oz) coconut milk (full fat tastes better than reduced fat!)
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon of ground turmeric
  • 1 stick of cinnamon
  • 3-4 cloves
  • 1 cardamom (optional)
  • 1 cup of frozen peas

Place all ingredients in a rice cooker and stir well. Turn on the rice cooker. Once the cooker is finished and moves to the warming cycle, open the lid and pour frozen peas on top of the rice. Wait 5 minutes and then open the lid to stir the peas into the rice and fluff the rice to keep it from clumping.

The same process can be done without a rice cooker on the stove top, just follow basic package directions for cooking the rice. Makes 4-6 servings.
