Some of the recipes don't explicitly specify that jasmine rice should be used but don't worry, it will not only work just fine but taste downright delicious.
I absolutely love the smell of it cooking in our kitchen.
However, I do have a recipe for coconut rice right! This will remove most of the starch and will make less sticky rice.
Some nights just call for a piping hot bowl of soup and jasmine rice works similarly to noodles making any soup heartier.
