1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 cups
thick coconut milk
plump lemongrass stalk, tender white inner bulb only, minced
fresh curry leaves, chopped
Thai basil, chopped
This was easy and very tasty. I used basmati rice also and dry curry powder. I didn't have lemon grass, but did top with green onions.
Rice was mushy, but flavor was good. If I make this again, I would use less water.
Tasty... I added 1 tsp. of brown sugar and I used brown rice instead of jasmine, which took a good 45 minutes more to cook and I had to keep adding water 1/2 cup at a time, so next time I'll precook the rice in a rice cooker... then I threw is some cubed tofu at the end.
This is a very easy recipe and tastes really good. The rice when cooked has a mild yet flavourful and authentic Thai taste. It will compliment any spicy curry like a Thai red curry. However the only modification I would make is to add about half tsp of salt and maybe another lemon grass stalk. Will definitely be making it again.
This was awesome. I used Basmati rice and dried curry leaves (Can't get Fresh ones here) and picked the Thai Basil fresh from my garden. Served it with a Thai Noodle salad and Panang Beef curry. This rice complimented the curry nicely. Served it to company who we had for their first Thai Dinner. There were NO leftovers !
The ingredients are great, I'm not too sure about these measurements however. I thought it needed more lemongrass and it was waay to sticky for my taste; more like risotto than rice. I took out a whole cup of water too and it was still that way. Where the heck do you buy curry leaves anyway? I had to leave that out but was still pretty good regardless.
Everyone in my family loved this. I had trouble finding lemongrass stalks and fresh curry leaves, so I substituted the lemongrass with zest of one lemon and the fresh curry with dried curry. Even with the substitutions, it came out great.
