 Produced with perfection, prepared with finesse, served with love


Taken from the Sanskrit word for “fragrant” or “perfumed one,” basmati is known for its sweet aroma, soft, luxurious texture and distinctive long, curved grains.

Festive Uses

Because of its basic life-sustaining qualities, rice is revered as a potent symbol of auspiciousness, prosperity and fertility and therefore is used extensively in Hindu rites and rituals.


Basmati rice contains thiamin and niacin, two B vitamins that are very valuable to the metabolism.


Flavorful rice blend in a savory sauce with chicken, black beans and green chilies and corn. Use it with cheese, tuna, curd or anything else that comes to mind.


The colour of Basmati is translucent, creamy white. Brown Basmati Rice is also available but the most commonly used is white Basmati.


Basmati absorbs the nutrients and richness of Indian soil so that when it becomes delicious risotto, the texture of the plump pearl kernels becomes soft and creamy.

When stored in an airtight container, whole-grain rice has a shelf life of 6 months. To make it last longer, stash it in the refrigerator or freezer

International Grain
