Soak the rice in plenty of water for 30 minutes and drain.

Place rice in a medium size saucepan, add coconut milk and measured water. Bring to the boil, cover with a lid.

Simmer slowly for 10 minutes.

Switch off the heat and leave rice to stand for 5 minutes.

Ina's Tip

The reason for pre-soaking the rice is to remove any insecticide spray left on the rice.
