How to Make It
In a medium pot, heat the oil over medium heat until hot. Stir in the garlic and ginger and cook stirring occasionally until translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in the rice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, coconut milk, water and kidney beans then bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover the pot. Cook until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, about 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork and let stand off the heat, covered, 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and serve.
