  • Grain Type: Long-grain rice, known for its elongated grains that expand to at least twice their original length when cooked.

  • Aged to Perfection: Royal Basmati Rice is aged for several months to enhance its texture and flavor.
  • Non-GMO: This rice is non-genetically modified, ensuring it is natural and healthy.

  • Versatility: Perfect for a wide array of dishes, including traditional Indian and Middle Eastern recipes, as well as modern culinary creations.

Cooking Instructions:

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.

Electric Rice Cooker: Take 1 cup of Royal® Basmati Rice and rinse twice to remove starch.  Use ratio of 1 cup (dry rice) : 2 cups (water). See rice cooker manual for specific operation.

*Cooking times are approximate.

Storage:
Store in a cool, dry place. If kept properly, basmati rice has a long shelf life, retaining its aromatic and flavor qualities.
