Jasmine Rice

Named after the sweet-smelling jasmine flower, jasmine rice is a long grain rice native to Thailand with a delicate floral and buttery scent. The secret to cooking it perfectly is using the right water-to-rice ratio. Typically, the instructions on the package call for 1½ cups water for every 1 cup of rice. That's fine if you like your rice "al dente," but I prefer mine more tender, so I use a bit more water. Many recipes call for rinsing the grains before cooking but I think it's an unnecessary extra step; even when you rinse jasmine rice, the grains have a slightly sticky texture and cling together.
