Basmati rice has been reported in India since the early days of the 19th Century. ‘Bas’ in Hindi language means “aroma” and ‘Mati’ means “full of” hence the word Basmati i.e. full of aroma. This rice is different from other rice mainly due to the aroma and lenght post cooking.
Basmati rice is grown only in Northern India and the world’s most relished Basmati rice is cultivated in the foothills of Himalayas. Soil and climate of the region account for the unique aroma, taste and texture of basmati rice. Its perfumed, nutlike flavour and aroma can be attributed to the fact that the grain is aged, to decrease its moisture content. When cooked, it swells only lengthwise, thereby resulting in long slender grains that are dry, separate and fluffy.
It is remarkably the long variety of rice & has a distinct aroma and discrete nutty taste. When cooked, the Classic basmati is longer, lighter and fluffier than standard white rice, and does not stick together.
