Basmati, meaning ‘Queen of Fragrance’ is a variety of long grain rice, famous for its fragrance and delicate flavour. Basmati Rice is nature’s exclusive gift to the Indian sub-continent. No other rice in the world has this combined characteristic of exquisite aroma, sweet taste and the post cooking elongation. Basmati rice has been known to the world since the early days of the 19th Century.

In India, Basmati rice is characterized by extra-long, superfine slender grains having a length to breadth ratio > 4.3, sweet taste, soft texture, delicate curvature and an extra elongation with least breadth-wise swelling on cooking. This highly aromatic rice is India’s gift to the whole world.
