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.

  • Start with the rice. To cook, in a saucepan, add 1 cup of rice to 2 cups of cold water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered for 25 minutes. Remove from heat and stand, covered for 5 minutes. If you are not sure how, we have a helpful “How to Cook rice section” to make you a pro. If you would like to use a brown rice in this recipe, simply add an additional ½ a cup of water.

  • Meanwhile, heat 2 tbs of oil with the cumin in a large non-stick frypan (or wok) over medium heat until the cumin is fragrant. Add the onions and stir-fry until slightly translucent. Add the tuna.

  • Fold through the rice. Stir to combine, then fold in the fresh herbs. If you have a lemon lying around, a sprinkle of zest and 2 tsp of lemon juice will liven things up. Taste and season to taste with light soy or salt, followed by lots of cracked black pepper.
