Coconut creamed rice with custard apple and lime


  • Prep 10 mins
  • Cook 1 hr 05 mins
  • Serves 4
  • 400ml light coconut milk
  • 400ml milk
  • 70g (1/3 cup) caster sugar
  • 1 whole star anise
  • 110g (1/2 cup) white medium-grain rice
  • 15g (1/4 cup) flaked coconut
  • 1 lime
  • 1 custard apple
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar


  • STEP 1 - Place the combined milk, caster sugar and star anise in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  • STEP 2 - Bring to the boil. Stir in the rice and cover. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour or until rice is tender and liquid has absorbed.
  • STEP 3 - Meanwhile, place the coconut in a frying pan over medium heat and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until toasted.
  • STEP 4 - Use a zester to remove the rind from the lime. (Alternatively, use a vegetable peeler to peel the rind from the lime. Use a small sharp knife to remove the white pith from the rind. Cut the rind into very thin strips.)
  • STEP 5 - Cut the custard apple in half and remove the thin segments of flesh. Remove and discard the seeds. Place the custard apple segments in a bowl. Add the lime rind and toss to combine.
  • STEP 6 - Divide the rice mixture among serving dishes and sprinkle with brown sugar. Top with the custard apple mixture. Sprinkle with the coconut to serve.
