The Patient: 12 ounces cooked Basmati rice
- 1 1/2 cups cooked Basmati rice
- 1 can coconut milk
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 2 star anise pods
- 3 cardamom pods
- 1/4 cup sugar (or to taste)
- Place the rice and coconut milk in a small pot over low heat. Add the spices, stir in the sugar, and simmer on low for about half an hour. The rice will de-clump, the milk will thicken, and the kitchen should smell heavenly.
- Once your preferred consistency has been reached, remove cinnamon stick, anise, and cardamom pods. Serve warm with cinnamon sprinkled on top. You could eat this with some sliced mangoes, if you have them on hand.
