Ordinary rice just doesn't taste as good a basmati.
Recommended. Just bought some of this and even OH - not a big lover of rice - said how nice it was. Probably my cooking though.

Well, of course, there's nothing wrong with 'cheap' rice, but Basmati is a little nicer and if you can get it for pennies a portion more, then why not give it a try.

"The world's most relished Basmati rice is cultivated in the foothills of Himalayas. Soil and climate of the region account for the unique aroma, taste and texture of basmati rice. The word 'Basmati' comes from the Hindi language, meaning 'Queen of Fragrance'. Basmati has a fine aromatic flavor with long and slender grains. Its perfumed, nutlike flavor and aroma can be attributed to the fact that the grain is aged, to decrease its moisture content. When cooked, it swells only lengthwise, thereby resulting in long slender grains that are dry, separate and fluffy".

I left regular rice behind many years ago. Basmati is miles better. I happily pay a little extra for it.

basmati is a fantastic rice for Indian cusine and pilaf but its not the same as other types of rice. its like potatoe varieties with Chinese cooking for example a shorter grained less nutty tasting rice may be more suitable. there are many rice varieties and they can all be used in different ways and for different dishes. i mean i generally prefer cherries to pears but sometimes i would rather eat a pear. vive la difference
They tried to grow basmati in China but couldnt really do it, for whatever reasons the climate water and soil in India/pakistan is where this cultivar grows . definitely good to have as part of your SHTF food chest
