Lemongrass Turmeric Rice

Previously I showcased Garlic Coriander Rice and now another rice dish - made with coconut milk, lemongrass and turmeric powder. This one is copied, yes copied from an old Her World magazine. I tweeted the recipe by replacing fresh turmeric with turmeric powder. Anyway doesn't really matter. Still acceptable for the bright yellow hue, mild aromatic scent and most importantly for the health benefits of turmeric powder and for the vibrant colour, creamy flavour and refreshing taste of this rice dish.

1 1/2 cups rice - washed and drained
1 cup thick coconut milk
1 tsp turmeric powder (or as preferred)
2 lemongrass - bruised
4 shallots - chopped
4 garlic - chopped
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

Sauté shallots and garlic in heated oil.
Add lemongrass, turmeric powder and rice.
Stir to combine all the ingredients, just a couple of minutes.
Tip into rice cooker, pour coconut milk and 2 cups of water.
Season with salt.
Stir and let it cook.
Fluff up rice once cooked.
