using my digital kitchen scale and the several different rice
i have on hand i have the following:
fancy pearl rice 1/4 cup == 42.0 grams ; 1 cup == 208 grams
indian basmati rice 1/4 cup == 50.0 grams ; 1 cup == 200 grams
thai jasmine rice 1/4 cup == 50.0 grams ; 1 cup == 200 grams
sushi rice 1/4 cup == 52.0 grams ; 1 cup == 208 grams
long grain rice 1/4 cup == 51.5 grams ; 1 cup == 206 grams
200 grams is approximately 7.05 ounces 2.27 cups per pound
206 grams is approximately 7.27 ounces 2.20 cups per pound
208 grams is approximately 7.34 ounces 2.18 cups per pound
1000 grams is approximately 2.20 pounds
1000 grams is approximately 35.27 ounces
so approximately 2.25 cups of raw rice per pound.
