Texmati White Rice. The Texmati has a taste and quality that is compared to a combination of basmati and the traditional American long grain rice. It has a great aroma similar to cooked popcorn when it is cooked and also has a great nutty taste. This rice is great to be served by itself as a side dish or can be combined into other side dishes or main dishes. I love cooking Chinese food and Mexican food. I find this rice to be great for making with both Chinese dishes and for making Mexican rice with!! Both of these rice selections from RiceSelect will also make for great sides for this years holiday feasts!!!
