What is it?

Jasmine rice, from Thailand, has long, translucent grains. When cooked, it has a seductive, slightly floral aroma and a soft, clingy texture.

Kitchen math:

1 cup raw rice = about 3 cups cooked

Don’t have it?

Substitute basmati or long-grain rice.

How to choose:

Jasmine rice is becoming fairly easy to find in the supermarket. Domestically grown jasmine (Jasmati) is decent, but buy an imported variety if you can.

How to prep:

Before cooking, jasmine rice should be washed to remove dust and excess starch.

How to store:

Jasmine rice will keep indefinitely in the pantry.
