Basmati rice is renowned for its delightful aroma and long slender grains. When cooked, Basmati rice expands in length and produces a light, fluffy texture that is ideal for absorbing the flavours of your cooking. A drier rice, Basmati grains will remain separate, making it a staple of Indian cooking.
