  • About

Jasmine rice is a relative newcomer to the North American table, but it’s taken the country by storm. With its sweet, delicate, almost floral flavor, it’s easy to see why. Jasmine rice can be found at Asian markets and specialty food shops. Serve this rice with any of the Thai grilled dishes in this book.


  • 2 cups jasmine rice


  1. Place the rice in a large bowl and add cold water to cover by 3 inches. Swirl the rice around with your fingers until the water becomes cloudy, then put the rice in a strainer to drain. Repeat this process until the water remains clear. This will take 4 to 6 rinsings.
