Cultivated in the Punjab region, on the border of India and Pakistan, Basmati rice is a long-grain rice with floral and woody notes. Its name means Queen of Perfume in Hindi (or Prince of Fragrances, depending on the translation). Low in sodium and with a low to medium glycemic index, it is also quick to cook, hence its popular success. I invite you with this recipe to a deliciously flavored trip.
