  • 2 tablespoons grated and peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 2 cups jasmine rice


  1. Bring ginger, sugar, salt, and 2 1/2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan; boil 2 minutes. Stir in rice; reduce heat to low. Cover; cook until most water is absorbed, 15 to 18 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand, covered, 7 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork before serving.
