Rich tasting rice?

At a Restaurant yesterday, I had a dish with mako shark & rice. The rice was rich and creamy but it was the basic white rice. I've noticed that they used coconut in the rice for texture and a touch of sweetness, however I'm still trying to figure out how they made the rice rich & creamy. I like to make it here at the apartment for when I can eat about a 1/4th cup of rice with my fish.


I'm thinking they used milk to make it creamy & rich?

Risotto is a short grain rice and with coconut milk would be very creamy and sweet. Your usual rice is long grain.

This rice was short, but yet it was white?


It looked like the typical uncle bens kind of rice, "although it wasn't uncle Ben's".

sounds like risotto to me, hmmmm. it's very creamy, it's slowly cooked with plenty of stirring. the starch makes it creamy & thick.

Thanks Luv, I may have to buy some next weekend at the store.


I really loved the taste and I never thought about putting coconut in the rice.
