Basmati rice is a type of long grained rice that is indigenous to the Indian subcontinent and is known for its aroma and unique flavor. Basmati rice naturally contains trace amounts of an aromatic chemical compound, one that is also found in a few fruits. This compound gives the rice grains a pleasing scent when cooked. Basmati rice is easily identifiable, especially when cooked. It is longer than most types of rice and is shaped to be thinner and pointier. The quality of Basmati rice depends not only on the yield itself, but also on the time it has been aged. Basmati rice must be aged at least two years before consumption to enhance its taste and aroma. Like most types of rice, Basmati is available in the brown and white variety. White basmati rice has been stripped of its outer portion, i.e. bran. The bran contains some fiber and fatty acids that increase the nutritional value of the rice. The taste of brown Basmati rice is also said to be stronger that the white rice, though the white Basmati has a longer shelf life. Nutritional Information White Basmati (1 cup – 158 grams) · Energy: 205 kcal · Protein: 4.3 grams · Fat: 0.4 grams · Carbohydrates: 45 grams o Dietary Fiber: 0.6 grams o Sugars: 0.1 grams Brown Basmati (1 cup – 158 grams) · Energy: 257.9 kcal · Protein: 6.2 grams · Fat: 3.8 grams · Carbohydrates: 48 grams Benefits and Uses For dishes that require the rice to be flavorful but still loose, Basmati rice is a good option. Unlike some other aromatic types of rice, Basmati is not sticky. The grains remain individual after cooking. The aroma of the rice is not floral or pungent, so the rice pairs well with almost any curry or complementary dish. Since the grains are loose and on the stiff side, Basmati rice is not the first choice to go with extremely spicy curries, though the pairing is not a rare one. White Basmati rice has almost no fat and a long shelf life. Though nutritionally, it falls shorter than brown Basmati rice, it is much easier to find and to store, making it a popular choice.
