3-quart pan combine lemon grass, rice, coconut milk, water, turmeric,

salt, galangal, bay leaf, and citrus leaf. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, stirring gently every now and then, just until liquid is absorbed. To finish cooking, steam according to one of the methods listed below.

To steam in cooking pan: cover pan, reduce heat to low, and cook until rice is tender (15-20 minutes). Halfway thru estimated cooking time, gently fluff rice with 2 forks. Remove and discard seasonings. Transfer to a serving bowl or mound rice on a platter into a rounded cone.

To steam using traditional method: transfer rice and seasonings to a colander or steamer basket insert. Into a large kettle, pour water to a depth or 1 1/2 inches: bring to boil over high heat. Place colander in kettle. Cover and reduce heat, steam until rice is tender (about

20 minutes). Remove and discard seasonings. Serve as noted above.
