Just as you wouldn’t call sparkling wine from California champagne, neither would you call rice from France Basmati.
Royal Brand Basmati Rice is grown from the foothills of the Himalayas, the only authentic place Basmati rice can be grown.
Truly authentic Basmati can come only from the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. There, a perfect harmony of climate, fertile soil and pure spring water produce this most extraordinary grain. The exceptionally fragrant, long-grain rice of Royal® is grown under the careful attention of India’s most expert farmers, and after harvesting it is aged for a minimum of twelve months in temperature-controlled silos. As with fine wine or cheese, this aging process brings out the full flavor of the grain, and also results in a non-sticky texture. This fluffy, aromatic and delicate-tasting rice is sure to enhance any meal.
Soak rice 15-30 minutes for extra length (optional)
1 cup rice
2 cups of water
1 tbsp. of oil/butter (optional)
pinch of salt (optional)
Stove Top: Bring 2 cups water to a boil in sauce pan with tight fitting lid. Add 1-cup rice, cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 20 minutes or until water is absorbed. Once the cooking process is complete, leave the cooked rice in the pan for 5 minutes. Serve.
Microwave: Take 1 cup of Royal® Basmati Rice and gently rinse twice. Drain the rice and add 2¼ cups of fresh water. Cover tightly with microwave-safe lid and cook on HIGH power setting for 15 minutes*. Remove from microwave. CAUTION. BOWL WILL BE HOT. Microwave ovens vary. If rice is too hard in the first cooking, use more water. Use less water if it is too soft.
