Sam Fore's Kiribath Recipe
2 cups of rice
2 1/2 cups of water
1/2 cup of coconut milk
Cook the rice (I use jasmine but all types will work) then stir in coconut milk until it is a good, thick consistency. Mix in 10 minutes before finish and allow to sit.
Mold into bowl. Serve with curries or spicy sambol (mine was onion, salt, chili and lime). Enjoy!
