- 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1/4 tsp salt, or more to taste

In a medium sized heavy pot, add coconut milk, rice, water, ginger, garlic, salt and coconut; bring to a bowl over medium heat.
Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until all liquid evaporates, about 40-45 minutes. Remove from heat, keep covered for 10 more minutes. Fluff with a fork; toss with cilantro.
