  1. Lightly pound the lemongrass stalk with a kitchen mallet. Combine the lemongrass, rice, coconut milk, bay leaves, turmeric, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally; reduce heat to low and simmer until all liquid is absorbed, about 25 minutes. Remove bay leaves and lemongrass before serving.

Very appealing and fragrant! I love trying new tastes and foods so this was even more of treat. I'm hooked on lemongrass now. I did change the recipe based on comments and a friends' advice. ...

This is really good, but I had to add a significant amount of salt, and I added some fresh cilantro once the rice was finished cooking. Next time I'll add extra lemongrass.

This has potential. I found that the tumeric was not quite strong enough so I added 2 tbsp of curry powder. The rice would just not soften. It was burning the bottom of the pan. I kept having to...
