Khao Chow - Thai Jasmine Rice

Khao Chow or Thai Jasmine rice or steam rice is most popular in southern Thailand. However, in northern Thailand and Laos, it is very common to cook both Thai Jasmine rice and sticky rice. I prefer Thai Lao Sticky Rice.

Recipe for Khao Chow- Thai Jasmine Rice
1 cup Thai Jasmine Rice
1 1/3 cup cold water

Rinse rice with cold water and drain. Repeat at least three times until the water drains clear. Add 1 1/3 cup of cold water or until the water is 1 centimeter above the rice. Set the stove element to medium heat. Place the pot on top of the element and place a lid over the pot. Cook for 20 minutes. Turn stove element off and let rice set for another 10 minutes. Remove lid and serve rice.

Use Thai jasmine rice to make Fried Rice and Jasmine Rice Porridge.
