About Aromatic Rice

Basmati is a long-grain white or brown rice with alluring aroma and flavor. Basmati gives Indian pilafs their distinctive texture and aroma.

Jasmine, another long-grain white rice, is dense when cooked, almost like medium-grain rice. It has a subtle perfumed aroma. Domestically grown jasmine rice need not be rinsed however imported rice should be.

Several American hybrid aromatic rices have become more widely available, including Texmati, a white or brown basmati grown in Texas, Wehani, a long-grain brown rice from California and Louisiana Pecan, a white rice named for its nutlike aroma.

We offer several Smart Sides as rice dishes including Whole Grain Spanish Rice, Un-fried Rice and Lemon Asparagus Rice. Be sure to order these along with selections from this month's new menu of entrees.
