Fragrant Rice is a fragrant type of rice that is very popular in China and Thailand, often called Jasmine Rice. Fragrant rice comes in many grades and from a huge variety of districts.
To prepare fragrant rice, use the absorption method:
- Add 1-1½ times water/liquid to volume of rice
- Bring water/liquid to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer
- When water/liquid is level with rice, put lid on the pan and reduce the heat to lowest possible
- After 7 minutes it is ready
You might need to adjust the method taking into account the heat of your hob, or the thickness of your pans, but the overall concept is the same.
