Jasmine rice

Jasmine rice is a type of rice that is native to Southeast Asia. It is a long grain rice that is often used in Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. Jasmine rice has a slightly sweet flavor and a fragrance that is similar to jasmine flowers.

Jasmine rice was first grown in Thailand and Vietnam. The rice was then introduced to other Southeast Asian countries, such as Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar. Jasmine rice is now grown in many parts of the world, including the United States, India, and China.

There are many different ways to cook jasmine rice. It can be boiled, steamed, or cooked in a rice cooker. Jasmine rice is often served with Thai curries, stir-fries, and soups. It can also be eaten on its own as a side dish.


Making jasmine rice is a simple process that can be done with just a few steps. When cooking jasmine rice, it is important to rinse the rice in cold water first to remove any impurities. After rinsing, add one part rice to two parts water and bring it to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a low simmer, cover the pot, and allow it to cook for about 15 minutes. Once the 15 minutes are up, turn the heat off and let the rice sit for five minutes before fluffing with a fork. Lastly, enjoy your jasmine rice!
