Takhrai is the Thai term that refers to lemongrass. Lemongrass is almost as popular as garlic in Thailans for its use in curries, sauces and marinades. The tall grass with fleshy stems can be seen growing in clusters outside the majority of rural Thai households. Its light aromatic lemon scent adds depth to all manner of foods and is essential among Thai ingredients.
