|What is Hom Mali rice and what’s so special about it?
Authentic Hom Mali rice, better known as jasmine rice, is only harvested once a year from North Eastern Thailand. ‘Hom’ represents its gentle, unique pandan-like aroma, and ‘Mali’ its jasmine-white appearance—hence jasmine rice.
When you are buying Hom Mali rice, be on the look out for the Department of Foreign Trade’s Thai Hom Mali Rice certificate as there are many mass-produced rice farm counterfeits. Remember, this highly nutritious and delicious rice is only harvested once a year.
