Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Add rice, 1 1/4 cups water and 1/8 tsp (1/4 tsp) salt to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.
Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. While the pan heats, remove outer layer of lemongrass. Using a rolling pin or heavy pot, carefully smash lemongrass to bruise, then halve crosswise. Zest, then cut half the lime into wedges (whole lime for 4 ppl).
When the pan is hot, add protein shreds, 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then lemongrass and ginger-garlic puree.Cook, stirring occasionally until crispy, 5-7 min.Carefully drain and discard any excess fat. Sprinkle Indian Spice Mix over protein shreds, then season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 30 sec.
