"Basmati" is a premium and elite variety of long grain rice, grown in India. It is famous all over the world for its aroma, fragrance, authentic flavor and outstanding taste. The literal meaning of Basmati is "the fragrant one". It is derived from Sanskrit, One of the ancient languages of the world.
India is the world's largest cultivator and exporter of Basmati Rice. Basmati Rice is primarily grown through paddy field farming in the most fertile fields in Punjab and other states of North India. Identifying Basmati Rice has been likened to identifying of diamond, as it needs an understanding & appreciation of high taste. Basmati grains are shaped like a sword; and post cooking each grain elongates at least twice of its original size. The rich and unique aroma is another way by which one can identify true basmati rice.
All other varieties of rice do not match the above qualities and non-basmati rice is generally identified by its random sizes and shapes.
