1 tbsp chopped garlic

1 stalks lemon grass, sliced

1 1/3 cups long grain rice

1/2 tbsp ground turmeric

Heat the oil in a medium saucepan. Add the onion and sauté until transparent. Add the garlic and lemon grass, fry for 1 minute, then add the rice and turmeric. Stir fry carefully until all the rice grains are evenly coated with a film of oil. Add the coconut milk and water. Stir well and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cover. Cook for 15-20 minutes, until done. Remove from heat and fluff. Let stand for 5-10 minutes. Serve hot.

The yellow color of this excellent rice dish from Indonesia is imparted by the ground turmeric during cooking. The blend of coconut milk and rice provides its unique flavor and taste. It is usually served with lots of accompaniments, the most common being chunks of cucumber, omelets strips and peanut sauce.
