Jambalaya w/ Jasmine Rice?


I'm cooking a Jambalaya and forgot to buy normal long grain rice. All I have is Jasmine rice. I'm getting ready to experiment with it b/c I don't want to go back to the store.

What say the gurus of the Food Board?

Not a guru, but used it, liked it enough to eat it all.

That's the key. But my rule is NEVER experiment with guests.

Do it. I cook all my jambalayas with Jasmine and it kicks ass. Remember that jasmine requires less water than traditional rice, so don't get it all mushy because you have too much liquid. Please report on how much your guests love it.

I always rinse jasmine rice 3 times before cooking. ie put rice in a bowl, cover with water, stir, then pour off water. Much better texture. I bet it would improve jambalaya texture also.
