    This was easy and very tasty. I used basmati rice also and dry curry powder. I didn't have lemon grass, but did top with green onions.  -  02 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a very easy recipe and tastes really good. The rice when cooked has a mild yet flavourful and authentic Thai taste. It will compliment any spicy curry like a Thai red curry. However the only modification I would make is to add about half tsp of salt and maybe another lemon grass stalk. Will definitely be making it again.  -  19 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Tasty... I added 1 tsp. of brown sugar and I used brown rice instead of jasmine, which took a good 45 minutes more to cook and I had to keep adding water 1/2 cup at a time, so next time I'll precook the rice in a rice cooker... then I threw is some cubed tofu at the end.  -  30 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
