Mahatma Jasmine Rice
Mahatma® Jasmine Rice has earned the authentic seal of Thai Hom Mali Rice which guarantees the authenticity of the rice. Jasmine Rice is a long grain rice variety; also known as fragrant, aromatic, or scented rice. Named after the sweet-smelling jasmine flower of Southeast Asia, jasmine rice has a naturally distinctive scent released during the cooking process and is likened to a flowery perfume. It is praised for its whiteness and silkiness. Cooked, it is soft, white, and fluffy. The taste of this rice enhances the traditional spices of oriental cookery and as more and more Americans explore exotic and ethnic cuisine for their meals, they are seeking authentic ethnic ingredients. Mahatma Jasmine rice can also be an excellent "change of pace" from regular long grain white rice and will enhance the taste and flavor of any traditional recipes.
