Organic Brown Basmati Rice - 500g
Basmati rice is known as the “Queen of Fragrance” and just one whiff will prove it! Particularly popular in Indian and Pakistani cuisines, Basmati is the perfect rice for any dish that needs its grains to remain intact and separate after cooking. Basmati grains double in length when cooked and don’t get sticky. A traditional white rice, it has had the husk, bran and germ of the grain removed, leaving a bright white grain that has a longer shelf life and stores better than other varieties (like brown rice.)
Our Basmati is a long, premium quality rice, grown in the foothills of the Himalayas in Northern India. Unlike ordinary long grain rice, the light, fluffy texture of Basmati’s long, slender grains offer the palate a totally different experience – distinctive, unique and slightly ‘nutty’.
Its irresistible aroma and delicate taste make it perfect for dishes with chicken, fish and vegetables, in salads, and as a base for most Asian dishes.
