HEERA BASMATI RICE 1kg

£2.99

Basmati rice is a variety of long-grained rice that originates in the foothills of the Himalayas and is traditionally served in Indian and other South Asian cuisines.

Frequently served alongside various curries, braised or roasted meats, or as the main ingredient in classic biryani, basmati rice is sometimes served plain but often flavored with turmeric or saffron, both of which impart a characteristic yellow hue.

Its distinctive nutty flavor and unique, slightly floral aroma is similar to that of jasmine rice, which is commonly used in Thai and other Southeast Asian cooking. When cooked, basmati has a slightly softer grain than jasmine rice, while jasmine has a nuttier flavor.
