Basmati derives its name from the Hindi words Bas and Mati meaning â€˜full of aroma’. Our Organic Basmati Rice lives up to that name. Long and slender, these pearly grains of fragrance are sourced from Uttarakhand in the foothills of the Himalayas. This famed Dehradun Basmati is unique in aroma and flavour and can be used to make pilafs, biryanis or simply steamed for a perfectly home-cooked meal. Know Your Basmati. Our Organic Basmati Rice is naturally blessed with high amylose that makes its long slender grains look puffy and separate after cooking.
