Thai Lemongrass Rice Recipe

Thai Jasmine rice cooked along with lemongrass and cardamom gives this flavourful ‘Lemongrass Rice’. I had this recipe when we went to Thailand and loved it the very first time. While cooking the house was filled with so much fragrance and we could not differentiate if it’s the smell of jasmine or lemongrass or cardamom. None of them override the flavour or smell of the other.  Jasmine Rice, Lemon Grass, Cardamom (Elaichi) Pods/Seeds   2 cups Jasmine Rice 1 Stalk Lemon Grass 4 to 5 Cardamom (Elaichi) Pods/Seeds     10   60     To begin making the Thai Lemongrass Rice recipe, remove the outer skin of lemongrass and cut the lemongrass into 3 pieces.Crush the cardamom using a mortar pestle.
