Basmati Rice is a simple long grain rice which transforms rice dishes into extraordinary meals. Blessed with a unique Aroma that has given it the deserved sobriquet ‘Scented Pearl’, Basmati lends a touch of class that can transform even the most ordinary meal into a gourmet’s delight. Basmati Rice has been cultivated at the foot of the Himalayan mountain ranges in India for thousands of years. The rivers Yamuna and Sutluj irrigate the Basmati paddy fields in Haryana and Punjab respectively. To obtain the correct aroma and flavor of Basmati rice, proper ageing is required to reduce its moisture content. Basmati Rice, known as the ‘King of Rice‘ is the gift of India to the World. Basmati rice is priced for its characteristic Long-Grain, subtle Aroma and Delicious taste. The grain elongates on cooking giving it a characteristic grain shape and integrity. Basmati rice can be equated with “Champagne” among wines and ‘Scotch’ among whiskies.
