The triple pagoda rice is from Cambodia Cambodian and Thai jasmine rice share the same characteristics and grow mainly in neighbouring geographic areas on opposite sides of the Northeastern Thai-Cambodian border. Cambodian jasmine rice (in Khmer: Phka Malis) is cultivated in Cambodia and processed as white (milled and polished) and brown rice. Distinct Cambodian jasmine rice varieties include these major three, namely Phka Rumduol, Phka Romeat and Phka Rumdeng. Recent DNA finger print analysis, carried out with 18 markers show that all three varietals possess 18 known fragrance allele. Two varietals (Phka Rumduol and Phka Rumdeng) are distinct Cambodian with 17 markers in identical position with Thai jasmine rice and one fragrance marker each in a different position. The analysis of Cambodian Phka Romeat shows all 18 markers in identical positions with the trademarked Thai him mali
Find a good brand of jasmine rice, from Thailand if possible (I use Golden Phoenix). Rinse the rice once, moving your fingers through the rice, until the water runs pure without any milkiness. Drain. Place the rice in a pot. Add enough water to cover the rice by 3/4 inch. An easy way to measure the water is to use the knuckle test – the water should come up to the first joint of your knuckle. (For 1 1/2 cups rice, I use just over 1 3/4 cups water). Bring the rice to a boil, uncovered. Turn the heat down to the lowest setting. Cover and simmer until the rice is cooked through (about 20 minutes). Remove the rice from the heat and allow to sit, still covered, for at least 10 minutes. Fluff with chopsticks or a fork before serving. Tips: The amount of water to add can vary depending on the rice. New crop rice – rice grown in the same year – is not as dry and needs less water. Cooking jasmine rice in a rice cooker can be tricky. Try reducing the amount of water called for in the rice cooker's directions - even to a 1:1 ratio if necessary. 1 1/2 cups jasmine rice gives about 3 1/2 cups cooked rice. Cold jasmine rice is very good for making fried rice.
