Directions

  1. If using fresh pandan leaves, tie each leaf in 3-4 knots and set aside. Remove and discard outer leaves of fresh lemongrass stalks, then bruise the lemongrass by whacking it hard with the back of a cleaver or the corner of a soup can. After the stalks are slightly shredded and flexible, tie each in a knot and set aside.
  2. Rinse uncooked jasmine rice a few times, until the water is just slightly cloudy, then drain. Put turmeric and 1 1/2 cups water in a small bowl, stir to combine.
  3. Add turmeric water, pandan, lemongrass, coconut milk, kaffir lime leaves, and salt to taste to rice cooker. Stir well and cook. Transfer rice to a serving bowl, fluff it gently with a fork. Enjoy!
