  1. In a medium-sized pan, heat the olive oil on a medium heat. Once hot, add the diced onion, garlic, ginger and salt. Stir and cook for about 5-6 minutes, until onions are gold and soft, but not brown.

  2. Add the turmeric and rice into the same saucepan, and stir well to combine all ingredients. Allow the rice to cook for a minute or two, continuing to stir.

  3. Pour in the coconut milk and water, stirring to combine. Turn the heat up under the pan and allow the mix to boil.

  4. As soon as the rice mixture has boiled, reduce the heat to as low as it goes and pop a lid on the saucepan. Allow the rice to cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the liquid is fully absorbed.

  5. Serve!
