Mimosa Rice

Saw this recipe from Green Mangoes and Lemon Grass. According to the book, this is an Vietnamese dish. It is like a fried rice but the rice is cooked with coconut milk. I modify the recipe slightly to suit my own taste and replaced the chicken with shrimp. The rice smell absolutely wonderful with coconut scent. Hubby gave it a thumbs up and thinks that shrimp is the best option to go because it added some seafood flavor to the whole dish. Here's my version and cooking method.


  • 560 ml coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2(400g) cup long grain rice
  • 4oz pork fillet diced
  • 2 Chinese sausage

  • 2 hard-boiled egg separated
  • 3-4 tsp fish sauce
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp dark soy sauce
  • Put the coconut milk and salt into rice cooker.
  • Add in rice and cook accordingly
  • Marinate pork and shrimp with fish sauce, sugar and pepper
  • Steam the chinese sausage until done and cut into slices.
