In the Thai language, “white” is expressed as “si khao”, that is, “the colour of rice”. So describing “white rice” is “Khao si khao”, which is “rice that is the colour of rice”!

​Thai people use the phrase “Khao dawk mali”, which translates directly to “Jasmine flower rice,” or “jasmine-white rice,” to describe incredibly white rice.

The English translation lost the “white” to become “jasmine rice” simply.
