Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup uncooked basmati rice
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 1/2 cup diced carrots
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1 cup boiling water

Instructions

  • In a medium pot, drizzle olive oil over medium heat.
  • Once heated, add the rice, peas, and carrots. Cook, stirring often, until the rice turns nearly white. Stir in the turmeric and salt.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together coconut milk and boiling water.
  • Pour 1 cup of the coconut water into the pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer over low heat and cover with a glass top so you can see when the liquid has reduced. Cook until the rice is tender, adding more coconut water as needed.
  • Fluff with a fork and serve hot.
