What is Fragrant Rice?
Primarily grown and harvested in the eastern parts of Asia, Fragrant or Jasmine rice is most prominent in Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia. It is a variety of long-grain rice that is most commonly served with other Asian delicacies. The term “jasmine” was derived from the jasmine flower and is mainly because of the rice variant’s white colour and sweet aroma.
Fragrant rice doubles the pleasure of eating a steaming bowl of fluffy rice because of its delicious, nutty taste and characteristic flowery aroma.
