This is part 2 of special video series “5 Colours of Thai Rice”! After exploring Thailand’s staple white jasmine rice, it’s time to look at the healthier sister: brown jasmine rice. Now, if you don’t like brown rice, hear me out, this is not your average brown rice! Being of the jasmine variety, it’s tender, fluffy, and a little nutty, but it still has that same floral aroma we love in jasmine rice. But because it’s a whole-grain rice, all of its nutritional benefits are still intact.

About the 5 Colours of Thai Rice Series: Did you know that Thai people nowadays are eating so many colourful varieties of rice? That’s right! There are several options of Thai rice you could be having with your Thai meal! In this series, I am giving you the lowdown on 5 types of rice Thailand has to offer, each with its own unique colour, and these are the 5 main types that Thai people now eat on a regular basis. Thank you Thai Trade Center Vancouver for sponsoring this awesome series!
