Rice is the seed of the oryza grass. The rice plant can grow to 1.8 m! It is the most widely consumed staple food for a large part of the world's human population.

 

Long-grain rice contains less starch than medium or short grains, so the cooked grains are drier and separate easily. They are perfect for pilafs or dishes with a lot of sauce.

 

Jasmine and basmati (not this rice!) are specific type of long grain rice that have distinct flavours. 

 

Cooking with Long Grain White Rice

 

Rinse thoroughly until the rinse water is clear before cooking to remove any excess starch and ensure it doesn’t clump together after cooking. Add 1 part rice to 3 parts water and bring to the boil. Then simmer for approx 30 minutes until the water has been absorbed.

 

Perfectly cooked long grain rice should be light, tender and fluffy. You can cook it in a rice cooker, on the stove or by steaming it. Cooking in slightly salted water will remove some starch and increase the fluffiness of your rice – try it!
