Thai fragrant rice: Fish! by Mark Hix

Serves 4

  • 2 lemon grass stalks, bulbous ends crushed
  • 8 lime leaves
  • salt
  • 225g basmatic rice, rinsed well in cold water

Cook the lemon grass with the lime leaves in about 1 litre of simmering salted water for 10 minutes.

Add the rice and simmer for 10-12 minutes more until it is just cooked.

Drain in a colander, then return the rice to the pan, cover it with a lid and then let it stand for ten minutes before serving. This will help it become nice and fluffy.
