  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 had a hard time with this recipe! The cocomut milk was very thick, I used curry powder instead of turmeric,which I think would have been OK. It cooked much quicker than the recipe suggested, e...

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. ...
