Working with Coconut Milk

Working with Coconut Milk Coconut milk has a much lower burning temperature than many other liquids. When cooking with this rich liquid, remember to keep a close watch on it so it doesn’t burn or boil over in the pot. Whether you’re cooking a curry or a stew, it’s important to stir often to avoid any ingredients sticking to the bottom of the pot or wok. If you use coconut milk to cook rice in a rice cooker, make sure to mix the rice gently with a wooden or plastic spatula even after the rice cooker says it’s done cooking. After mixing the rice, allow it to sit on the cooker’s warm setting for at least another 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
