To prepare lemongrass for cooking you can cut the yellow stalk into 2-3″ lengths and then “bruise” these sections by bending them a few times then create surface cuts along these sections (with a knife) to help them release the lovely lemony flavour. These should be added to dishes to impart flavour but should not be consumed.
Lemongrass is also known as citronella grass. It is a type of flowering plant which belongs to the grass family and is originally from Sri Lank and Southern parts of India. Lemongrass has a citrus-like aroma and adds a zing to many Thai dishes and herbal teas. It gives a flavour or lemon with a hint of ginger. Some people say fresh lemongrass has floral and minty notes.
