If you cannot find doongara rice, use white long-grain rice instead. Doongara rice was developed and is grown in Australia. It's a white, long-grain rice similar to basmati, and has a higher content of amylose (starch) than other rice, which means it is more slowly digested ­ it has a lower glycaemic index than most other rice varieties.
