"Have it jest as you've a mind to, but I've proved it time on time, / If you want to change her nature you have got to give her lime." -Rudyard Kipling, Author

The refrigerator light goes on...

Never stir rice. It doesn't matter how you cook it, stirring it breaks down the starches on the outer layer and turns the rice to a gooey paste. Simply place the rice in the boiling liquid, stir once and partially cover. Leave it alone until the water is evaporated.

Cilantro Lime Rice from Dr. Gourmet


Shake the can of coconut milk very well before opening it.

In a medium sauce pan, heat the coconut milk, water, salt, and lime juice. When the liquid boils, stir in the rice.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered, for about 40-45 minutes.

Do not boil away all of the liquid and do not stir the rice.

When a very small amount of liquid remains, remove the pan from the burner and let it stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fold in the chopped cilantro and serve.
