Regenerative Organic Certified White Rice

Organic White Basmati Rice

Description:
One of the few authentic traditional basmati varieties still in production, our heirloom basmati is grown on family farms in Northern India. Its exceptional aroma, flavor and texture are what made basmati one of the most beloved rices in the world. It cooks up soft and fluffy in just 20 minutes, and is perfect in pilafs, curries, puddings, salads, soups and stir-fries, or simply steamed with your favorite proteins and vegetables.

Our Basmati Rice is the first rice to achieve Regenerative Organic Certification (ROC), qualifying for ROC Silver! This rigorous new standard goes beyond existing Organic and Fair Trade certifications in promoting farming that enriches rather than degrades soil and values animals and workers.

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 ½ cups of water, 1 cup rice and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand covered for a few minutes. Fluff and serve. Basmati rice may also be soaked for a minimum of 30 minutes before cooking to improve the flavor and texture. If doing so your cooking time will be reduced. A rice cooker may be used with the same water-to-rice ratio.
