Lion Jasmine Rice is a type of rice that is known for its fragrance and delicate flavor. It is a long-grain rice that is commonly used in Southeast Asian and East Asian cuisine, particularly in dishes such as stir-fries, curries, and rice pilafs.
The 2kg package is a common size sold in many markets. When preparing the rice, it is important to rinse it thoroughly in cold water to remove excess starch and any impurities. Then, it can be cooked using the absorption method, which involves bringing the rice to a boil with water or broth, then reducing the heat and simmering until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender.
Jasmine rice is a great source of carbohydrates and provides some essential vitamins and minerals such as thiamine, niacin, and iron. It is also gluten-free, making it a suitable option for people with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease.
