Tilda Basmati Rice 500g
Basmati is a fragrant, nutty-tasting long grain rice grown in the Himalayas and Pakistan. ‰ÛÏBas‰Û in Hindi language means ‰ÛÏaroma‰Û and ‰ÛÏmati‰Û means ‰ÛÏfull of,‰Û hence the word Basmati ‰ÛÓ or ‰ÛÏfull of aroma.‰Û The key to making basmati rice that is light, tender and fluffy is to rinse it first, otherwise, the grains will be gummy and stick together.It only takes a minute or two. Simply place the rice in a bowl with water, and then swish it around to release any excess starch. The water will be cloudy at first but after several rinses, it will be clear.
