Celebrate the summer or the 4th of July in the sweetest way – with a Blueberry and Cherry Kiribath, a Southeast Asian dessert a little like rice pudding. Yum!


  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 cup Royal® Jasmine Rice
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup fresh cherries, pitted and halved
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons rose water optional


  1. Place the Royal® Jasmine rice, coconut milk and water in a deep pan and bring to a boil. When mixture reaches a rolling boil, turn the heat down low. Add the cinnamon, blueberries, cherries, salt, honey and rose water.
  2. Cover and let simmer for 18 minutes—make sure the flame is low. Otherwise, the liquid will evaporate too quickly and the rice might get burnt.
  3. Remove from heat and pour into a shallow glass container.
  4. Let cool before cutting. Eat plain or top with whipped coconut cream. If you wish to make a tricolor for the Fourth of July, divide the recipe and cook plain rice, then rice with blueberries, and then with cherries. Divide in the shallow pan into 3 parts.
