This smoky coconut rice with wood ear mushrooms and bamboo shoots recipe is one of the best Asian rice recipes I've ever made and eaten so far!
Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1½ cup water
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut in thin strips
  • 30g dry wood ear mushrooms, hydrated for 10 minutes
  • ⅓ cup bamboo shoots
  • ⅓ cup chopped scallions
  • 1-2 Tbsps sweet chili sauce, or to taste depending on how sweet/spicy it is (I used Shan'Shi Chili sauce which is rather sweet than spicy)
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • sea salt, to taste
  1. Add water and rice into a wok. Cover with a lid and let it boil.
  2. After 5 minutes, add the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Cook for another 10 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed and the rice is well cooked. Stir occasionally.
