One of our featured menu items, Indian Butter Chicken, comes served with jasmine rice and broccoli. Jasmine rice is a little different than regular white rice and here’s how:
The taste of jasmine rice is a little sweet and somewhat nutty, making its flavor more complex than white rice.
Jasmine rice is a long-grain “aromatic” variety of rice that has a fairly strong scent that’s usually described as a mix of floral and buttery popcorn.
Jasmine rice contains iron and niacin that can help with red blood cell production and converting carbs to glucose for energy.
Compared to white rice, jasmine rice is more fluffy and clumps together slightly but isn’t sticky. Most people really enjoy its unique texture.
