Thai Lemongrass Jasmine Rice

Thai Lemongrass Jasmine Rice

Happy to share my first recipe with products sponsored by Urmatt Ltd & Dragon Fly. The first one is a simple rice recipe which can be prepared by anyone. Since I have received rice products I will be also publishing some simple Thai curries which goes well with the rice. Thai Jasmine rice cooked along with lemon grass and cardamom gives this flavorful “Lemongrass Rice”

Thai Lemongrass Jasmine 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 flavor or smell of the other.  The dish goes well with any thai curries. My other Thai curry recipes are

I have not tried in pressure cooker hence not sure how much time and water proportions needs to be changed.
