Royal White Basmati Rice is a variety of rice commonly grown in the Himalayas. It is a long-grain rice characterized by a light nutty flavor and floral aroma. And, it’s often used to make rice pilaf. Basmati rice is popularly served with Indian curries, as the fluffy grains happily sop up sauces.

Royal White Basmati Rice is nutty, floral, and very mildly spicy. (It is definitely mild when compared to other Indian ingredients.) When cooked properly, the tender grains remain individual and lack stickiness. The rice pairs well with mild and flavorful curries and dishes, complementing but not overshadowing.

Truly authentic Basmati can come only from the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. There, a perfect harmony of climate, fertile soil, and pure spring water produce this most extraordinary grain.

This long-grain rice has an enticing aroma and is grown under the careful attention of India’s most expert farmers, and after harvesting it is aged for a minimum of twelve months in temperature-controlled silos. As with fine wine or cheese, this aging process brings out the full flavor of the grain and results in a non-sticky texture.

This fluffy, aromatic, and delicate-tasting rice will enhance any meal and lend authenticity to your Indian flavors.

Royal White Basmati Rice can be left in its original packaging if tightly sealed and stored in a cool, dark place. It should be used within a few months. For longer storage, up to a year, seal in an airtight glass or plastic container.
