Basmati Rice

Endless Potential

Basmati rice is a long-grain, aromatic rice variety that has its origins in the Indian subcontinent. The word "Basmati" is derived from the Sanskrit word "vasmati," which means "fragrant." Its unique aroma and flavor have made it popular worldwide, especially in dishes like biryani, pulao, and other Indian and South Asian cuisines. The history of Basmati rice can be traced back to the Indian subcontinent, particularly in the foothills of the Himalayas. Its cultivation is believed to have originated in the Indian region of present-day Jammu and Kashmir. Over the centuries, Basmati rice has been cultivated and improved upon by local farmers, leading to various sub-varieties with distinct characteristics and flavors.
