This true basmati from the foothills of the Himalayas is aged a minimum of two years. This aging process intensifies the aromatic qualities of this rice dramatically. As the rice ages, moisture/water evaporates away, increasing the oil's role in the flavor profile. This rice is wonderful when steamed with aromatic spices like clove, green cardamom and fennel. This premium rice is the finest aromatic rice in the world.
Basmati can be used whenever a long grain White Rice is needed. It's most often used in South Asian cooking. The nutty flavor and firm texture go well with spicy curries and stir fry. A good choice for stews and soups.
