Why Basmati Rice?

The world’s most sought-after Basmati rice is cultivated in the foothills of Himalayas. Soil and climate of the region account for the unique aroma, taste and texture of basmati rice. The word ‘Basmati’ comes from the Hindi language, meaning ‘Queen of Fragrance.’ Basmati has a fine aromatic flavour with long and slender grains. Its perfumed, nutlike flavour and aroma can be attributed to the fact that the grain is aged, to decrease its moisture content. When cooked, it swells only lengthwise, thereby resulting in long slender grains that are dry, separate and fluffy.

Instructions For Use

Thoroughly rinse 250g of Lal Qilla rice with lukewarm water. Soak for 1.5 hours. Add the soaked rice and salt to 100ml of lukewarm water. Cook on medium heat until the rice absorbs the water. Cover with tight lid and remove the pan from the stove. Stand for 20-25 mins. Serve hot with curries or sauces.Note: If the cooked rice is too hard then use more water in next cooking and if the same is too soft use less water in the next cooking.
