It's a long-grain white rice grown in Thailand. It's what Thai restaurants serve. Very nice flavor, texture, and fragrance. You can usually find it in the supermarket with Asian foods. A rice cooker makes it perfect.

I prefer Basmati rice myself. Has a great nutty flavor and a little more texture than Jasmine. But that's just me.

Yeah what John said. It is good and comes out consistently good even without a rice cooker. It's not as starchy as regular rice.

I too prefer Basmati over Jasmine. Usually cheaper too, depending on where you buy it.

They're similar. Basmati grains do not stick together much, Jasmine a little more so. If you're using rice under a curry or similar gravy-like dish, Basmati may be a better choice. If you're just eating rice, I like Jasmine better.

Re: Jasmine Rice

I've been using Jasmine for years and love it. It smells so good while cooking and tastes so good you can really eat it plain. Has kind of a popcorn smell and taste.

Re: Jasmine Rice

Jasmine rice is our go to rice unless doing brown rice. When we do brown rice, I like to throw some thinly sliced garlic in at the beginning.
