This rice is a staple in Malay breakfasts. Try pairing it with your favorite side dishes! This is generally made with Thai fragrant rice but if you don't have any, use long-stored rice if you have some. Don't cook this using new rice.
Wash the rice and then put it in the rice cooker. There's no need to soak the rice. Wash the pandan leaves and tie them in a knot. If they are dehydrated, then just put them in directly as is.
Add salt to the rice and then pour in the coconut milk. Adjust as necessary with some water, if necessary. Mix it well. The liquid should be slightly lower than the 4 cup mark. Add the pandan leaves and cook the rice.
Here is the cooked rice.Take out the pandan leaves and mix well.
Mix in some sambal while eating.

Since this rice has coconut milk in it, do not store it in the rice cooker. If you have leftovers, freeze them or put them in the fridge, then just heat it in the microwave before serving. Check out Recipe ID: 677254 for more information on pandan leaves.
