Mahatma® Jasmine Rice premium quality Basmati rice is grown in the foothills of the Himalayas where it is washed by the snow-capped mountains. It is perfect for dishes like Pulau or Biryani. It is also enjoyed plain. Basmati is known as a fragrant or aromatic rice due to the wonderful aroma it emits while cooking and its delicious flavor when cooked. Aging the rice intensifies the aroma and taste even more. Each grain cooks up into a wonderfully long, slender and fluffy grain. Available in 2lb and 5lb.
