Basmati rice is unique in terms of its characteristics - exquisite aroma, sweet nutty taste and elongation after its completion, which makes this product a delicacy.
Cultivated in the Himalayan region, sweet Himalayan water and alluvial soils, plus special weather conditions, this rice gains its unique qualities. Just like wine, it gets better with age. Real Basmati rice has a very low moisture content, so it is aged for 1-2 years, and sometimes up to 10 years. When cooked, aged rice has a more pronounced aroma and taste, it is much more fluffy and crumbly.
Polished grains of Basmati rice are transparent, creamy white. They are quite long, from 6 to 8 mm in length, thin, no more than 2 mm in diameter. Basmati is a non-sticky rice variety that makes it as easy to prepare as possible.
Those looking for high energy food in their regular diet should prefer basmati over other varieties of rice as it has high calorific value.
