½ tsp of salt

In a medium pan add the rice to the water and bring to the boil over a medium high heat. Once boiling, cover and turn the heat down so that it simmers until all the water has evaporated, around fifteen to twenty minutes.
Set the oven to 180C. Then add the coconut milk to the pan along with the spices and sugar, simmer for five minutes.
Place in an ovenproof dish and bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and check, if it still looks wet cook for a further five minutes until a skin has formed.
To serve sprinkle salt on top, and garnish with fruit of your choice.
