What Is Basmati Rice?
Basmati rice is a type of long grain rice that originated from the Indian subcontinent. The word “basmati” means fragrant, and this refers to the aroma of the cooked rice. It has been grown in India for centuries and it is still a popular ingredient there today.
Basmati can be served as a side dish or main course with various sauces, vegetables, meats or fish dishes. There are many different varieties of basmati available on the market depending on where they were grown and what kind of water was used during production. Some people prefer to soak their basmati before cooking because it helps increase its tenderness and flavor; others like to cook it right away without soaking first at all.
