Sunwhite® White Medium-Grain Calrose Rice

Sunwhite® White Medium-Grain Calrose Rice

Sunwhite® Calrose Rice is an oval medium-grain white rice known for its quality and taste. When cooked, Calrose rice becomes soft and tender with a tendency to stick together due to its succulent grains, allowing it to retain its moisture. Sunwhite® Calrose Rice is used in dishes that require a bit more creaminess as well as a side dish to compliment almost every meal. Its versatility means that it can be used in everything from starters and soups to desserts. For best results, rinse this rice with cold water. Drain well before cooking. All rice is naturally gluten-free. 4kg and 9kg packages are available in Jordan only.

  • Preheat oven to 180C fan forced. Grease ten 80ml (1⁄3-cup) non-stick muffin pans. Tip the rice into a large bowl, use your fingers to separate the grains.

  • Heat oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Add onion, cook for 3 minutes or until soft. Add to the rice with the remaining ingredients. Season well with salt and pepper. Mix well.
