Organic Brown Basmati & Wild Rice by Hatton Hill Organic. Organically grown, harvested and dried in India. Packed in the UK.
Basmati rice is a light, delicate variety of rice that originates in the foothills of the Himalayas. It's unique among rice varieties because each grain expands by more than twice its dry length during cooking, growing longer but not thicker, unlike other types of rice, whose width also bulks up when they're cooked.
Basmati rice is high in carbohydrates and micronutrients such as thiamine, folate and selenium, and the brown variety has more fibre, magnesium, vitamin E, zinc, potassium and phosphorus than its white counterpart.
Wild rice is actually not rice in the technical sense, but a grain produced by a species of grass that resembles a rice grain, although it's longer, darker and contains fewer calories and more protein. It's a delicious, nutritious, visually appealing addition to our premium-quality organic brown basmati rice.
Our organic brown basmati and wild rice mix has a wonderfully fluffy texture, making it perfect for pilafs and frying, although if you're planning on using it to top with curry, steaming or boiling it will allow it to soak up the sauce more effectively.
There are dozens of dishes you can make using our organic brown basmati and wild rice mix – from stir-fries to soups to salads, and just about everything in between. Basmati takes stocks and seasonings well without turning mushy, so feel free to spice things up a little with broths and ingredients such as saffron, garam masala, cardamom, cinnamon and coriander, to name just a few.
