Brown jasmine rice is an unpolished grain, which means it is higher in vitamins, minerals and fiber compared to polished rice. When cooked, brown jasmine rice is light brown in color with a sweet nutty flavor and a delicious chewy texture. Most Thais still prefer polished jasmine rice, but today with increasing concerns about health, brown rice is becoming more popular in Thailand. Brown Jasmine Rice can also be combined with Red Cargo Rice in equal proportions and cooked together. In Thailand brown rice is especially appreciated prepared for breakfast as kao dtohm, boiled rice soup.
Because brown rice requires longer cooking time then white polished rice, it is best to pre-soak the rice at least four hours or overnight in plenty of water to cover. This not only cuts down on the cooking time but also increases the health benefits. Brown jasmine rice may also be used as a substitute in recipes calling for brown basmati rice.
To store, all types of rice should be kept in a cool dry place in the original packaging until opened. Transfer to an airtight container once opened. Use all types of rice within one year of purchase.
