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.

Serve Thai Lemongrass Rice along with Vegetarian Thai Massaman Curry and Thai Stir Fried Green Beans Recipe for a perfect weekend lunch or dinner.
