1 cup water

1 14-ounce coconut milk

11⁄2 cups white rice

1⁄3 cup coconut flakes

In a large pot, combine the water, coconut milk, and rice and bring to a simmer. Cover and allow to cook 20 minutes, or until rice is done.
In a separate skillet, toast the coconut flakes over low heat until lightly golden, about 3 minutes. Gently stir constantly to avoid burning.
