Often called the “King of Rice”, Basmati is an extra long grain rice famous for its distinct nutlike flavour, delicate texture, and standout aroma.
Our Basmati rice comes direct from India. In keeping with traditional methods, it is aged for 1–2 years so that it loses its moisture, and its fall-off-your-fork light, fluffy characteristics come to life.
While Basmati rice is ideal for Indian dishes, this fluffy rice can be used with virtually any dish. Before cooking Basmati rice, it is necessary to soak it for half an hour and then wash it in several changes of cold water. According to the Canadian Diabetes Association, Basmati rice is the lowest of all rice on the Glycemic Index, making it more suitable for diabetics compared to certain other grains and products made from white flour.
