Basmati also called ‘Queen of Fragrance’ is long, slender and aromatic rice originated from India and Pakistan. The average length of the grain ranges between 6.00 mm to 8.00 mm with a length/width ratio of 3.5 mm – 4.5 mm. It is creamy white in colour and has a slightly curved blade shape. When cooked, it doubles the size, produces a slight aroma and stays separated and fluffy. Basmati rice is a perfect choice for Biryanis, Middle Eastern cuisines such as Mandy and Khabsah Rice, Nasi Minyak and other garnished rice dishes.
