Indian Basmati is imported from India. This rice grows in the foothills of the Himalayas where it is washed by the snow-capped mountains. This rice is perfect for dishes like Pulau or Biryani. It is also enjoyed plain. This rice is known as fragrant or aromatic rice due to the wonderful aroma it emits while cooking, (similar to the aroma of popcorn) and its delicious flavor when cooked. Aging the rice intensifies the aroma and taste even more. Each grain cooks up into a wonderfully long, slender and fluffy grain.
