    Add ¾ cup coconut milk and ¾ cup water to a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, add ¾ cup basmati rice, and reduce heat to low. Simmer with cover on for about 15 minutes, until most of the liquid is absorbed. Let stand for a few minutes before serving. For an even creamier taste, mix in some extra coconut milk to the finished rice.
