Coconut Rice FAQ

What kind of coconut milk is best?I definitely recommend using full fat coconut milk for this rice recipe. It’s got that creamy flavor that brings life to the recipe, and is also a healthy fat!

Will coconut milk burn in the instant pot?This recipe is designed so that the coconut milk will not burn, if you follow it as written. The high fat content prevents burning!
