To the recipe now. Lemongrass Rice/Nasi Serai. As usual, my style to cooking - (Turkish Saffron Rice) uncomplicated and for rice dishes (Nasi Minyak, Nasi Bunga Telang, Nasi Pudina & Nasi Jintan), I am supported by the rice cooker. Enough said, lets cook darlings!
1 lemongrass - slice/chop thinly (lemongrass from our garden)
2 cups rice - rinse
1 tbsp salted butter
Salt per taste
3 cups or the usual amount you use for cooking rice in the rice cooker
Papaya leaves - to serve the rice (optional)
Heat butter, add lemongrass.
Stir till lemongrass is slightly crispy.
Add rice, stir for a while.
Pour water, salt and stir.
Cook. In other words, allow the rice cooker to do its job.
Once cooked, fluff up rice.
Serve on the bed of papaya leaves.
