Rinse the dry rice until it runs clear to keep it from clumping.


Rinse rice in a sieve until water runs clear; drain.

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add brown sugar, scallion whites, and garlic; sauté until sugar melts, about 3 minutes. Stir in rice to coat.

Combine broth, coconut milk, and enough water to make 2 cups liquid; add to rice mixture. Bring rice to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, 15 minutes. Remove rice from heat and let steam 5 minutes more; fluff with a fork.

Garnish rice with scallion greens and toasted coconut.
