1.5 cups rice (medium grain or sweet glutinous rice)
2 1/4 cups water
1/2 tsp. salt
1 15 oz. can coconut milk (not light)
1/2 cup sugar
pinch of salt
Cook the sweet rice together with the water and 1/2 tsp salt in a rice cooker until the water is absorbed.
In another saucepan, combine the coconut milk, sugar, and pinch of salt over medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the sugar has dissolved (and don't boil it, or you will lose some of that delicate coconut flavor). Remove from the heat, stir in the rice, and cover. Let it sit for 1 hour, so it can absorb all the coconut milk.
