Arroz con Coco
Authentic Columbia coconut rice that is caramelized in coconut oil and sugar, adding raisins, currants or Saltanas
13.5 oz can
Unsweetened coconut milk
Long grain rice
Raisins or Saltanas
Heat coconut milk in a 2 quart heavy-bottomed saucepan over high heat until simmering. Reduce to medium low and cook, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon until reduced to a couple of tablespoons.
Continue to cook, stirring and scraping constantly until coconut oil breaks out and coconut solids cook down to a deep, dark brown, about 20 minutes total.
Add rice, sugar (more or less to taste), and salt. Increase heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly until rice grains begin to turn translucent and golden, about 2 minutes.
Add raisins (if using) and stir to combine. Add the water, bring to a boil and reduce to low. Cover and let simmer for 20 until rice is tender.
