  • 1 cup long-grain rice
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, bottom 6 inches only
  • 1—3/4 cups coconut milk
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • Salt

Wash the rice under running cold water until water runs clear. Bruise the lemongrass stalk by hitting it with the blunt end of a knife.

Place coconut milk rice lemongrass, bay leaves, turmeric, and a pinch of salt in a medium saucepan. Slowly bring to a boil, stirring once in a while. Once it boils. Lower heat to a low simmer, cover and cook for 25 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed.
