This is considered to be the most valuable rice in the world, and it is grown at the base of the Himalayas. It is a long-grain and aromatic variety of rice. Its characteristic aroma stems from the specific climatic conditions, which is a mixture of frost and sun. Crystal clear water cascading from Himalayan glaciers sinks into the soil where the rice grows. These uncommon climatic conditions provide an aroma unlike any other rice.
Cooked Basmati rice is light, loose, fluffy and often distinctively white.
It is best served with poultry, fish and seafood. Basmati rice can be stored for a long time, while it develops its special properties and flavour.
