Bas” in Hindi language means “aroma” and “mati” means “full of” hence the word Basmati — or “full of aroma”. Basmati rice has unique features such as extra-long grain, lengthwise excessive elongation on cooking, soft and fluffy texture of cooked rice, and a pleasant aroma. The extra long and fluffy grain of the Basmati Rice is naturally aromatic and aged over 24 months for the perfect non-sticky texture and a delicate, sweet flavor. The White Basmati Rice is GMO-free, gluten-free, cholesterol-free, and contains zero fats. The grain stays separate when cooked, allowing sauces to coat each individual grain with flavor.
