Sarawakian Local Delights :Serai
Serai or lemon grass is used by the Ibans of Sarawak in their cooking. It goes well with meats, and fish.
It has a very subtle citrus flavour and can easily expel any gamey smell. Most indigenous people grow their own lemon grass in their backyard.
It goes exceptionally well with seafood like squids.
Lemon grass can be easily obtained in the wet markets and supermarkets.
It can also be used in teas, soups and curries. Today many households would serve natural drinks flavoured by homegrown lemon grass. It is really healthy and refreshing. Lemon grass can expel flu and cough when taken as a hot tea.
Nowadays a good lemon grass oil can be extracted for aromatherapy purposes. It is scientifically proven that lemongrass oil can attract a swarm of bees into traps.
