How to Cook Fluffy Jasmine Rice to Perfection


How to Cook Fluffy Jasmine Rice to Perfection

Ever wonder how to cook fluffy jasmine rice to perfection? This Asian staple is a favorite for many for its flavor and fluffy texture but cooking Jasmine rice to perfection requires some attention to detail. 


Not to worry though, we’ll guide you through the step-by-step process to perfectly cooked fluffy and fragrant Jasmine rice for every meal!


Step 1: Proper Measurement 

Start by measuring the desired quantity of Jasmine rice using a standard measuring cup. For every cup of rice, you’ll need 2 cups of water.


Step 2: Cover, Boil, and Cook 

Time for the fun part! In a heavy-bottomed saucepan with a tight-fitted lid, add the rice. Pour in the measured water, place the saucepan over medium-high heat, cover, and bring the water to a boil. Optional: Add salt and butter and stir.


Step 3: Reducing Heat and Simmering 

Once the water comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low and cover the saucepan with the lid. Allow the rice to simmer gently for about 15-20 minutes. Avoid peeking or stirring during this process as it can interfere with the cooking process and result in unevenly cooked rice.


Step 4: Resting and Fluffing

After about 20 minutes, turn off the heat and let the rice rest for another 5 minutes with the lid on. This step allows the rice to steam further, resulting in a fluffy and evenly cooked texture. After resting, carefully remove the lid, savoring that delicious jasmine rice aroma sometimes compared to freshly popped popcorn, and use a fork to gently fluff the rice, separating the grains without breaking them.


Step 5: Serving and Enjoying 

Your perfectly cooked Jasmine rice is now ready to be served alongside your favorite dishes. Whether you pair it with stir-fried vegetables, curry, or grilled meat, the fragrant and light texture of Jasmine rice will complement any meal.


Additional Tips: 

For a more aromatic flavor, you can add a few pandan leaves or a strip of lemon zest to the rice before cooking.

  • Adjust the water and cooking time based on personal preference to achieve your desired level of tenderness.

  • For best shelf life, store uncooked rice in the refrigerator after opening.


Follow these instructions for your next Jasmine rice meal and, we promise your result will be a fluffy, fragrant perfectly cooked batch of Jasmine rice every time.
