The slender, white, slightly sticky variety can be a great stand-in for Thai jasmine rice. We like it with a simple broth as here: chicken wings and thankuni pata (Asiatic pennywort).
about the rice
Mallifulo is a variety that produces slightly glutinous rice. The gentle aroma and flavour makes it good as a table rice without overpowering.

what you can cook with
Mallifulo’s glutinous quality makes it perfect for soupy sides. It goes well with lightly flavoured vegetable, herbs or chicken broths.
