Our today’s information is on the difference between Thai Jasmine Rice and Sushi Rice. Both are popular Asian Rice. These special varieties of rice are popular for speciality cuisines. So let’s start First here we have Thai Jasmine Rice. Please observe this rice. This rice is also known as Hom Mali that means aromatic rice. This variety of rice is being cultivated in Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam apart from Thailand. Cooked rice is long, aromatic with a hint of sweetness to taste. The pleasant aroma of the cooked rice is slightly close to Jasmine flower and that is how this has got its name Jasmine Rice. This rice is largely popular throughout the world of its long grain and pleasant aroma after Basmati rice. Here, you can see Thai Jasmine Rice and Basmati Rice. You may find these rice grains similar in their appearance. But, close observation may detect that Basmati has sharp edges whereas Jasmine rice has round edges. Jasmine rice doesn’t have sharp edges like Basmati. This rice is being used in various Asian rice dishes. This rice has properties similar to Basmati. You can buy Thai Jasmine Rice from Departmental Stores and online stores. The price starts from Rs 300/- for 1 kilogram. However, this rice is hard to eat in its raw form. Foreigners (Normally non-rice growers) often interchange Thai Jasmine Rice with Basmati Rice. Indian hardly uses this rice in their routine cooking. However, restaurants and hotels use this rice to prepare Asian and Thai rice dishes. Images of a few dishes made with this rice are on your screen. This rice has all the properties of the rice with a fairly good amount of vitamin B. To prepare Thai Jasmine Rice – you need 1 cup of rice in 1 ½ cup of water after cleaning rice thoroughly with fresh water. This rice doesn’t need soaking like Basmati before cooking. Rice turns soggy if you soak it in water before cooking. Our second rice is Sushi Rice that is glutinous rice. Rice turns into sticky and fluffy rice after cooking. This property makes this ideal for preparing Sushi Rolls. This rice is widely cultivated in Eastern and South-Eastern Countries. This glutinous rice is very popular in Japan and it has got its name after the Japanese dish “Sushi” making it popular throughout the world as Sushi Rice. Here, we have medium grain Sushi Rice. This brand, Kokuho Rice is cultivated in America by a Japanese family. This rice is cleaned properly and soaked in water for half an hour before cooking. For cooking this rice – you need 1 ½ cup of rice in 2 cups of water. However, every rice is gluten-free but due to its properties such as soft texture and stickiness made it ideal for making flour for various gluten-free cuisine and baking. Sushi rice is starchy and sticky rice that is hardly consumed in North and South Indian. However, this rice is quite similar to glutinous rice consumed in Northeast India. Sticky rice is considered as low-grade rice in North India. Because knowingly and unknowingly all rice are being compared with Basmati. That is a myth, because every variety of rice has a unique quality and flavour. Sushi rice has been used for preparing various Asian dishes in India. Images of a few dishes made with Sushi rice is on your screen now. Sushi rice is very expensive rice. This rice is only available in departmental stores and online stores.
