Jasmine rice is a long-grain rice known primarily for its aroma that reminds one of popcorn and pandan. It is primarily grown in Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam in the Mekong Delta region (the bread basket of the world). You have almost certainly eaten jasmine rice before thanks to its popularity in rice dishes. But if you are unfamiliar with it then this recipe is a great place to learn to cook it and make the simplest type of rice dish.
