There is no specific measurements of the ingredients for this recipe, just add more or less to suit your taste. First add couple of lemongrass stalks and a small piece of ginger, once it is boiled taste it, add more if necessary.
I've used store-bought lemongrass stalks, you can use lemongrass leaves if you get them in stores or if you grow in your garden.
