The Difference Between Jasmine Rice and Other White Rice There are several different types of rice, and amongst the options is Jasmine rice which is the healthier option amongst the variety of different white rices currently available on the market; Jasmine rice can also be brought as brown rice too. It has a long grain and due to its fluffiness and slightly sticky texture when cooked, it’s considered to have an excellent cooking quality. The biggest noticeable difference between this rice type compared to others is its Jasmine aroma, which is where it gets in name from. For many people, buying Jasmine rice is a healthier alternative than white rice as it is packed with more nutrients that the body can benefit from. How to Cook Jasmine Rice Perfectly Cooking with Jasmine rice is simple, but there are a few steps you must take to ensure you get the perfectly cooked Jasmine rice every single time. First of all, before you cook the Jasmine rice, ensure that you rinse the uncooked rice 3-4 times until the water runs clear. This is crucial to get rid of excess starch that makes it soggy. Once this is done, the cooking process can begin. The next step is to measure the rice and water. The best way to do this is putting the amount of rice you want to serve into a pan, and then put the tip of your pointing finger on top of the rice and add water until it reaches your first knuckle. This is a well-known technique in Thailand, and it is the best way to get the perfect rice. From here, turn the pan on high heat, and cover until the water starts to boil, after this, give it a stir and leave to simmer until all the water has evaporated and once that’s done, your rice is ready to be served.
