Frequently Asked Questions
How should I choose my rice?
In this recipe, I used Jasmine rice. But you are welcome to swap it with basmati rice. Although, I prefer Jasmine rice because it is softer, plumper, and slightly moist.
What type of wine is best?
DO NOT use cooking wine because it is packed with sodium and will make your food way too salty! And I do not suggest using the wine that you usually drink.
I enjoy using Pinot Grigio as it is a delightfully crisp, lemony-lime, dry white wine. You can opt to use cheaper wine.
What if I do not want to use wine?
These are amazing substitutes for wine:
- Chicken or vegetable stock
- White Wine Vinegar
- Or combine 1 tbsp of lemon juice per cup of stock for extra flavor!
