What actually is Thai Jasmine rice?
Jasmine rice is originally from Thailand and is from the long grain rice family. Its grains are slightly shorter and thicker than its Basmati cousin and have a very different aroma. Almost floral in scent, Jasmine rice has been likened to a Pandan fragrance.
Some rice matures with age but Thai Jasmine rice is enjoyed as close to the harvest as possible. It means the grains are super fresh and the delicious fragrance is still strong.
