it is a simple and quick rice recipe. lemon grass stem is a common ingredient used in thai cooking. its a fragrant stem and infuses a lovely lemony aroma in the food. even when you are chopping it, you can get this lemony aroma.

in fact, i have always used lemongrass in our everyday tea. we have lemongrass tea quite often at our place. i have never used lemon grass in any other indian recipe till now. for the first time i have added lemon grass stem in a rice based dish.

i do venture sometimes in other cuisines. thai food is a personal favorite. i am also planning to cook the thai red curry and thai green curry soon. one of my favorite thai curry recipes. i adapted this lemon grass rice recipe from here. whilst, i did not have the fragrant jasmine rice, i used instead another fragrant rice – basmati rice.

you need to know how to chop the lemongrass stem. check out this nice article with pictures on how to chop and prepare lemon grass stem for cooking. i used the fleshy part to make the pat pet takrai and the upper end of the stalk to make this fragrant lemongrass rice. i separated the layers of the stalks and added them to the rice.

  1. Thank you for this user friendly, very practical layout. I appreciate you putting the entire recipe first. Not everyone has time to read a travelogue or someone’s meandering thoughts about how they made something, and sometimes you just need the recipe immediately. Well-done.
