I'd had a few beers and in my haste chose a 500g photo. Fixed

Excuse my ignorance but what difference do brands make in terms of rice. How does one basmati differ from another, commanding a higher price (apart from branding which has no impact on the actual product itself except in the consumers mind).
Genuine question, not trying to be a d*ck.

You would expect more expensive brands to pick out higher quality grains, whereas cheaper brands will probably include any grain that is grown. There may also be differences in the manufacturing process, some brands add a powder to the rice to replace the nutrients lost during the manufacturing process however this can be washed off if you rinse the rice before cooking and therefore some brands will apply the nutrients to the grain in a way which doesn't wash off.

nice find

£14 for 20kgs in costco

Its always this price but I must say, the quality is consistent. Quite unlike the 40p per kg value range from most supermarkets which is inconsistent and sometimes broken up. But if you eat is as plain side dish, then the cheap ones will do.

this is not "Basmati"

In short, its like wine... from £ for a tesco branded wine to £££. The rice equivalent of "£££ wine" is so exclusive/limited that some restaurants have exclusive contracts to buy the whole crops from certain region/fields. (I usually laugh at expiry date on rice packs because like wine, rice matures with age)

Anyday, I would suggest "Lal Qilla Basmati Rice - Old Malai"
