    Made this to go with the awesome Malaysian chicken curry. A good mix of flavours  -  20 Aug 2009


    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 USA and 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 USA and Canada)
