What are your favorite varieties of rice?

ghalik ghalik
I eat rice pretty much every day and I love any variety, though some I eat more often than others. What are your favorites?

There are over 40,000 varieties of rice, so this is just the most common. If you like a rare variety please comment!

EDIT: brown arborio is supposed to be brown BASMATI. Sorry.

Very in depth poll, good job.

I love any kind of white rice with a little butter and garlic. Not sure exactly what fried rice falls under but I love that too

Most of these I have never even heard of. LOL. I'm not a rice person at all. I hardly ever eat it. Seriously the ONLY time I eat rice is in my mom's cheese rice casserole--which is the shit I must say, excuse my dirty mouth.

Now, let me just tell you about this rice casserole. It's rice mixed with 2 cans of cream of chicken. Green pepper chopped and added if you like and I do. Lol. Then bake it and add LOTS of sharp cheddar cheese. Oh yeah, forgot the sausage. I think it's actually called sausage casserole. Whooops. Lol. You definitely add cooked sausage before baking. Anyways, it's been one of my fav foods since I was a kid.

I voted for both my boyfriend and myself. He LOVES the shorter grained asian rice that we can only seem to get at the oriental market. He likes the consistency SO much more than the local long-grained rice. He's picky about it, though.

I on the other hand? I really don't care. I like long grain, shorter grain, I like brown rice, I like rice pilaf and the rice we get in packages to make meals. I am not picky!

I cook white Calrose with a small handful of black and red mixed in because I like the texture, I also splash in some EVOO when the rice starts bubbling, that will keep the rice from sticking and is good for our digestion system. I also love sticky rice and sushi rice, but I only eat those at the restaurants.

I love rice! (Any type but Minute Rice or Uncle Bens.) I love aromatic rice, like Basmati or Jasmine. I also like brown rices. I love sticky rice, risotto rice, and other short grain rices.

A few times I have gotten pink rice from Whole Foods. It didn't taste all that different than most mild aromatic rices, but it was pretty. Black rice and purple rice taste good, but people tend to not like the way it looks on a plate.

I'm not a fan of Wild Rice (which is actually a grass seed) but my husband adores it. Only he often buys premade mixes that are loaded with MSG and mixed with other rices and I don't like those. Wild Rice takes a long time to cook and he doesn't have the patience. (When he buys these for me to cook, I usually put most of the rice in the pan (you can't use a rice cooker with these because the rice is precooked, bleh) and then throw out most of the "seasoning." It's mostly MSG and autolyzed yeast and crap I don't like to eat or serve my family. I add herbs and oil or butter to make it taste better. I still prefer real rice to mixes or precooked rices.

We got a rice cooker a few months ago and use it all the time. I've never had a better way to cook rice

We keep brown basmati, brown jasmine, brown long, arborio (not brown), and pearl rice (also not brown) on hand all the time for use in various dishes.

We recently made the switch from white rice to brown rice, and I haven't looked back. My dad's not as big of a fan--he says it's got a weird texture. I like, it though. It's nutty. The longer cook time is a pain, though.

I only cook the 'real' rice, but I'm always curious about those Uncle Ben rices but have never tried any. Cooking wild rice isn't that much different from regular rice, you just need to soak them overnight, and they do need an additional ten minutes longer to cook than the regular rice(a total of 40 minutes for me). I'm glad you love your rice cooker; I never use one and I cook my rice in a heavy tri-ply pot; I received a rice cooker as a gift before, and I gave it to my mother-in-law because I don't like it taking up my counter space.

Any kind of rice is good with us. Basmati is the one we most commonly use, but have also blended our own wild mixes.

HA HA!!! I love my rice cooker but have never used it to make rice!!! I use to to make soups in the winter! It's like a portable stove!!!

I am not keen on any short grained rice, unless it is a little sticky. I prefer the long grained rice of the north. Thai rice is lovely and fun to eat, Korean rice is ok, but I like this rare rice from Japan that tastes like heaven on the tongue.

The city just got in long grained brown rice and I've been buying that by the bag full. I drop in some coocnut oil into the pan, then let the fire melt it. Then add in the brown rice until they start popping out of the pan, then add the water and let it cook on the lowest flame for about 30ish minutes. Turn the flame off, then let sit for another ten or so minutes. Viola! Perfect rice!

Almost all restaurants serve rice here, and it is funny. Some of my favourite shit holes restaurants have the best rice in town. The Mama always says, serve high quality rice and your customers will come back. Which must be true!!!

That's why I cook Calrose...because it's sticky like Japanese rice. My husband (like most Asians) likes Jasmine long-grain rice but I don't, so too bad for him because I'M the one doing the cooking!
