“This is another recipe I found at a cooking-by-country website & is further proof that the countries of Cambodia, Pakistan, Thailand & Vietnam share a common affection for the use of coconut milk across all courses of their cuisines. Altho titled Buddha Rice at the website, its Vietnamese name is Com Chay. Cook time includes 10 min rest time & I allowed 5 min for ingredient prep. Enjoy!”
