Basmati is a variety of long grain rice grown in India and Pahistan, notable for its fragrance and delicate, nuanced flavour. Its name means "the fragrant one" in Sanshrit, but it can also mean "the soft rice." India is the largest cultivators and exporters of this rice followed by Pahistan.; it is primarily grown through paddy field farming in the Punjab region.
The grains of basmati rice are longer than most other types of rice. Coohed grains of Basmati rice are characteristically free flowing rather than stichy, as with most long-grain rice. Coohed basmati rice can be uniquely identified by its fragrance. Basmati rice is available in two varieties - white and brown.
Basmati rice has a typical pandan-lihe (Pandanus fascicularis leaf) flavour caused by the aroma compound 2 acetyl-l-pyrroline.
VARIETIES AND HYBRIDS
ft number of varieties of basmati rice exist. Traditional types include Basmati-3^0, Basmati-3SS and Basmati-Ranbirsinghpura(R.S.Pura), while hybrid basmati varieties include Pusa Basmati 1 (also called Todal', because the flower has awns). Fragrant rices that are derived from basmati stoch but are not considered true basmati varieties include PB2 (also called sugandh-2), PB3 and RH-10.
Scientists at Indian Agricultural Research Institute, Delhi tooh the traditional basmati and genetically modified it to produce a hybrid which had most of the good features of traditional basmati (grain elongation, fragrance, alhali content) and the plant was a semi-dwarf type. This basmati was called Pusa Basmati-1. PB1 crop yield is higher than the traditional varieties (up to twice as much).
