Organic Brown Basmati Rice

This premium brown basmati variety known as the “mother of all basmati” is distinguished by its amazing flavor, fragrance and elongation. The Dehraduni variety is what elevated basmati rice to one of the world’s most recognized and best-loved rices. True Basmati Rice is difficult to cultivate which has led most producers to grow lower quality hybrids which now flood today’s markets. Grown in the remote Doon Valley of Uttarakhand in India, this is truly an exceptional heirloom rice with a flavor and texture superior to almost any rice available in the US. The aroma reminds us of lightly buttered popcorn and the texture is light and fluffy. Even better, it’s grown using SRI farming practices (what we call More Crop per Drop™) so farmers can harvest more rice using less water and pesticides while reducing methane off-gassing and physical labor for women. Visit our MCPD page to learn more about this amazing system that is changing how rice is being grown around the world.

Cooking Instructions:
Combine 1 ¾ cups of water, 1 cup rice and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand covered for a few minutes. Basmati rice may also be soaked for a minimum of 30 minutes before cooking to improve the flavor and texture. Fluff and serve. A rice cooker may be used with the same water-to-rice ratio.
