Alternative to Jasmine Rice


Rice is a staple in many ethnic and American dishes. It comes in many colors, shapes and sizes, each of which are preferred for different dishes. Jasmine rice is a popular recipe ingredient but is not readily available in some areas of the country.


  • Jasmine rice comes from Thailand. It is a long-grain variety and is available in brown or white forms. It has a mild floral scent when it is cooked.


  • Basmati rice is a good substitute. Its grain is a bit longer. It requires a little more time to cook and it is less sticky than the Jasmine type. Basmati rice is more expensive than Jasmine rice.


  • Another popular substitute is popcorn rice, also called American basmati. It is a cross between basmati and American long-grain rice. You can substitute plain American long-grain rice if the other varieties are unavailable.
