2 cups raw brown jasmine or basmati rice (white rice can be used if preferred)
1 tsp salt
3 cups cold water
1 full stalk lemongrass, outer leaves removed and cut into 4 pieces (this should equal about 4 3-inch pieces of lemongrass)
4 slices fresh ginger, about 1-inch thick
- Place all ingredients in pot with tight-fitting lid.
- Place over high heat and once it comes to a boil, cover with lid and reduce heat to lowest temperature.
- Continue simmering while covered until water is evaporated and rice is tender.
