Long-grain rice is a generic term for a category of rices.
These rices have the longest kernels of all the rices, about 4 to 5 times as long as it is wide.
The category includes such rices as basmati, jasmine, and in fact, the plain white rice we are mostly familiar with.
The grains have less starch than shorter-grained rices, so they don’t stick together as much, making when cooked for a fluffy rice that is ideal as a side dish or as a bed for something such as a curry.
