Jasmine rice is a lovely, subtly perfumed rice used across South East Asia. It’s strongly associated with Thai food, and used for serving with everything from Thai marinated chicken to Chilli Basil Stir Fry, Satay Skewers and the many Thai curries out there.

  • 1 cup Jasmine Rice
  • cups Water cold from the tap


  • Place rice and water in a medium saucepan (one with a tight fitting lid). Bring to rapid simmer with NO LID on medium high.
  • Turn down to low or medium low so it’s simmering gently, then place lid on. Do not lift lid during cook.
  • Cook 12 minutes or until water is absorbed by rice – tilt pot to check (if lid not glass, then QUICKLY lift lid to check).
  • Keep the lid on then remove from heat. Stand 10 minutes, fluff with rubber spatula or rice paddle, then serve
