* Don't have lemon grass?? No worries.. one whole  lemon zest is equal to 2 stalks of lemon grass. So, you can grind some fresh cilantro, a small piece of ginger and some lemon zest, and lo! here's your fresh home-made lemon grass paste. Where there is a will, there is a way, right???


  1. As usual the recipe is as enticing as the video and the narration. Very colorful and seems easy to make! And promises a guaranteed tongue tingler

  2. Great colours and flavours, you can't go wrong with a Thai Green Curry!
