On The Move Organics, White Basmati Rice - 1kg
Long-grain, aromatic, and versatile, Basmati Rice will take you on a trek through South Asia. Escape into a food adventure and let our Basmati Rice inspire tonight’s dinner! Unlike Arborio Rice, Basmati is not starchy. Instead, Basmati Rice is soft, fluffy, and retains its shape once cooked. Nutty and earthy in fragrance and flavor, Basmati is delightful on its own, as well as an ideal vehicle to carry other foods. Top your rice with curries, sauces, sautés, and stews to expand your Basmati horizons! Use Basmati Rice for both sweet and savory applications.
HOW TO COOK IT: 15 minutes to the best rice!
Basmati Rice uses a classic 2:1 ratio; 1 part rice, 2 parts water. To begin, soak desired amount in water for up to 30 minutes. Drain and rinse thoroughly. Set rice and water in a deep pan over medium heat. Once up to a simmer, cover, lower heat, and cook for 10 minutes. Turn off heat and allow rice to sit for 5 minutes.
CULINARY TWIST: A spice journey!
We love one-dish meals, particularly oven bakes! Replace your usual rice with Basmati for chicken and rice bakes. Since you’re using Basmati, take the opportunity to use exotic spices in your bake; such as cumin seeds, coriander powder, and garam masala! Try using Basmati in your rice pudding recipes as well! Basmati is wonderful carrier of flavors. How does cardamom-spiced chocolate rice pudding sound?
