Types of rice

Hi, can anyone tell me difference between the rice in turkey? There is baldo, osmancik, etc. I'm looking for rice commonly served in Chinese restaurants.
Is glutinous rice available?
Pls advise.
TQ

Re: Types of rice

You can get a nice Jasmin rice at a good price in Bim, i like it for chinois style dishes.
For every day i use baldo, i wash and drain it first and it cooks fine.
Kirik baldo is broken rice, used for dolma type cooking and stuffing fings!.

Re: Types of rice

I use Jasmine and Basmati for chinese and curries etc. (Jasmine is the stickier rice)

Baldo for rice puddings and pilaf

Re: Types of rice

The rice for making risotto is called risotto rice in Britain, available in supermarkets.

In Turkey I believe it's Arborio rice that is used, but any starchy rice should be acceptable.

Re: Types of rice

Thank you Eliot. The rice I buy in the UK is Aborio rice but I thought it might have a Turkish name I wouldn't understand. I haven't looked for it on previous visits but we are really into risotto at the moment.

Re: Types of rice

I've been buying "Natura Verde" Arborio rice in Metro. It's very good quality and reasonably priced.

Re: Types of rice

Bulgur is also adviced as rice replacement in diets if gluten is not a problem.
