Fragrant Jasmine Rice

Anna Olson's Jasmine Rice would go perfectly with her curried chicken with apples recipe.


  • 6 cups water

  • 1 Tbsp ground coriander seed

  • 1 stem lemongrass, bruised

  • 1 Tbsp salt

  • 1 ½ cups jasmine rice

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

  • 1 Tbsp finely grated lemon zest

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh coriander

  • dash red chili flakes (optional)

  • salt & pepper


  • 1.

    Bring water, coriander seed, lemongrass and salt up to a boil. Rinse rice in a fine strainer until it runs clear and add to boiling water. Simmer rice (uncovered is OK) for 10 minutes. Drain and rinse rice through a fine strainer, remove lemongrass and return to pot.

  • 2.

    Over low heat stir in olive oil, lemon zest and lemon juice until blended. Stir in chopped coriander and red chili flakes (if using) and season to taste.

  • 3.

    Serve warm or at room temperature.
