    1/4 tsp vanilla essence

Method

    Coconut Rice

    1. Cook the Spekko Long Grain Parboiled Rice according to instructions on the packet
    2. Place the coconut milk, cinnamon stick and star anise in a small pot on medium heat. Let bubble for one minute, then reduce heat to low and let simmer for 5 minutes to infuse the coconut milk with the aromatics
    3. Using a spoon, remove the cinnamon & star anise.
    4. Add the sugar and vanilla extract and stir until combined.
    5. Next, add 1 1/2 cups of the cooked rice and let simmer on medium-low heat for 10 minutes until the rice becomes nice and creamy.

     

    Coconut Caramel

    1. Place coconut sugar paste, coconut cream, and salt in a small sauce pan. Heat slowly while stirring to dissolve the coconut sugar.
    2. Once mixture is boiling, reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 10-15 minutes. The sauce will thicken further as it cools.
    3. To test the consistency, I take the saucepan off the heat, spread a little sauce on a saucer (or similar) and place in the freezer for a few minutes. If the caramel doesn’t thicken (enough), I simmer the sauce for a little longer.
    4. Stir vanilla extract into finished caramel sauce. Fill into an airtight container.
    5. The coconut caramel sauce may harden as it cools. To make it pourable or dippable again, warm it a little in a water bath or in the microwave.
