Wash the rice under running cold water until water runs clear. Bruise the lemongrass stalk by hitting it with the blunt end of a knife.
Place coconut milk rice lemongrass, bay leaves, turmeric, and a pinch of salt in a medium saucepan. Slowly bring to a boil, stirring once in a while. Once it boils. Lower heat to a low simmer, cover and cook for 25 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed.
Remove bay leaves and lemongrass and serve hot.
Note: This is an amazingly fragrant and flavorful rice dish.
