Directions

  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.

I was in a hurry so I used about 2 Tablespoons of prepared lemon grass (not the stalks). Also added a pinch each of white sugar and salt. Used a rice cooker, but did not treat the coconut milk as liquid since it usually absorbs quickly without cooking the rice. Therefore, I still added the usual amount of water. Also don't use curry powder, tumeric has a much stronger flavor, but I doubled the amount stated here. I skipped the bay leaves since I was out of them, but wonder how they might have changed the flavor. The rice was fragrant and all flavors worked together wonderfully.

Great recipe - worked really well. I do wish that people would stop rating a recipe badly, when they haven't actually followed the instructions, or even used the ingredients as recommended

This was fabulous. Was going to take a picture but it was eaten up rather quickly! It was my first cooking experience with Lemongrass and I love the subtle flavour. The bay leaves were perfect too. My only other comment is I either just plain forgot the salt altogether or a "pinch" is not enough. Whichever, I added a bit more to enhance the flavour. I love the coconut milk and rice combination. There was not a grain of rice left anywhere. I also used the 'low fat' version of coconut milk. Thank you MrsE - this will be a permanent addition to my recipe box.
