The world's most relished Basmati rice is cultivated in the foothills of Himalayas. Soil and climate of the region account for the unique aroma, taste and texture of basmati rice. The word 'Basmati' comes from the Hindi language, meaning 'Queen of Fragrance'. Basmati has a fine aromatic flavor with long and slender grains. Its perfumed, nutlike flavor and aroma can be attributed to the fact that the grain is aged, to decrease its moisture content. When cooked, it swells only lengthwise, thereby resulting in long slender grains that are dry, separate and fluffy.


The very word ‘Basmati’ has originated from Vasumati which means earth recognized by its unique fragrance. The full exposition of the word is from Hindi. Bas originating from Prakrit Vas which has a Sanskrit root- Vasay connoting aroma; and Mati meaning ingrained from the origin. According to Ayurveda, Basmati, the king of all varieties of rice, is saatvic or pure, is nourishing for the body tissues and is easy to digest.
