1
Place the jasmine rice in a fine mesh sieve and rinse under cold water until the water runs clear. Make sure to drain the rice well afterwards.
2
In a medium non-stick saucepan, heat the coconut milk, water, and salt over medium-high heat.
3
Once it starts to boil, add in the rinsed and drained jasmine rice, bay leaves, and lime zest. Bring this mixture back to a simmer.
4
Adjust the heat to low, cover the saucepan, and let it simmer until the liquid has been thoroughly absorbed, but do not worry if there are a few small pools of liquid on top. This process should take about 18 minutes.
5
Take the saucepan off the heat but leave the rice to rest, covered, for about 15 minutes.
6
Before serving, take off the cover, discard the bay leaves and fluff the rice gently with a fork.
