Basmati and Jasmine 10 Minute Rice Review

You may have seen this product on the shelves already. I tested it out to see if it really made tasty rice in 10 minutes! I have made regular rice before and had it turn out a bit crunchy, so I definitely think rice can be a touchy thing to make. Minute Rice has different rices available. For this review, I looked at the 10 minute Jasmine and Basmati rice.

How to make Minute Rice:

  1. Get out a pot, add in a packet of the rice with 1 1/4 cup of water. Bring to a boil, then cover pot and reduce heat to low and let simmer for 10 minutes. Done!


  • Fast to make – lives up to only taking 10 minutes (plus 1-2 mins while you wait for the water to boil)
  • Tastes good – Seems pretty fool proof since I know I’ve messed up rice in the past, but haven’t with this!
  • The individual packets make the process even faster and help with portion-control
  • Packets keep rice fresh


  • Excess plastic to hold the individual rice portions
