  • 450 gram Thai jasmine rice, washed and drained (about 3 rice cooker cups)
  • 4 Indonesian bay leaves (Indonesian: daun salam)
  • 2 lemongrass (Indonesian sereh), cut into 2 inch sections, bruised
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk from canned coconut milk
  • 2 3/4 cup water, or unsalted chicken stock for non-vegetarian (*)


  1. Place all ingredients in rice cooker pot, give it a stir so everything is mixed together. Put the pot in your rice cooker machine, and press cook until the rice is fully cooked.
  2. Let the cook rice sit unopened for 10 minutes, then open the rice cooker lid, use the rice spatula to gently fluff and stir. Keep warm until ready to serve.


  • (*) Follow the required amount of water suggested by your rice cooker, minus 1/4 cup which was substituted by 1/4 cup coconut milk.
