Do You Know?
Basmati rice has been reported in India since the early days of the 19th Century though it may have been named differently.
Basmati rice is grown only in Northern India and in parts of Pakistan touching India.
'Bas' in Hindi language means "aroma" and 'mati' means "full of" hence the word Basmati is ‘full of aroma’.
Basmati rice has two characteristic features, which no other rice has, which have made it a delicacy. These are aroma (of sweet taste) and post cooking elongation (more than twice its original length).
