Rinsing rice in lukewarm water removes excess starch and prevents the rice from becoming gummy once cooked.

I've made this several times. It's hard to get wrong, and goes well with curry. It reheats well too, so making a big batch hasn't been a problem for just two. This is not a dessert or sweet rice, you might look for a coconut sticky rice recipe if you're looking for something in the sweet variety.

I enjoyed this, especially with the scallions on top. But the coconut flavor is very light, so I'm not sure it's worth all the fat from the coconut milk.
