Jasmine rice before cooking, rinse with cold water until bestowed when the water becomes clear. Old Soak the rice for 30 minutes - this will be less brittle. After rinsing and soaking the rice dry it possible.


Pour the rice into the cold, unsalted water (1 cup rice to 1.5-2 cups of water) and bring to a boil uncovered. You can also cook in the broth. Boil for 15-20 minutes on low heat until the rice absorbs the water. Time start to count from the moment of boiling water. Simmer, covered, with a slightly ajar cover until the "craters" and stew under a tight lid. Cooked grain of rice is soft and delicate.


After cooking, we leave it for 10 minutes, then pour the cold water and stir gently.


Jasmine rice is ideal for desserts, also fits in addition to meat, fish, vegetables and salads.

Bon appétit!
