There are 3 types of grain: long grain rice, medium grain rice, short or round grain rice. The long grain rice is light, non-sticky and separate well. It includes Basmati rice, Jasmine rice and Ferrini rice. Les riz a grain moyen et court sont les riz Arborio, Carnaroli, Vialone et Nano. The medium and short grains include Arborio rice, Carnaroli rice, Vialone rice and Nano rice. For my part, I prefer to use jasmine rice. Its perfume gives a much more flavorful taste. Cooking rice varies from one culture to another.
