SunRice Basmati & Long Grain Blend

SunRice Basmati & Long Grain Blend

This blend of aromatic Basmati and Long Grain Rice is the gateway to Indian cuisine and produces a light fluffy texture ideal for absorbing flavours. A drier rice, Basmati grains will remain separate, which makes it a staple of Indian cooking. It tastes great with tandoori and in curries such as the classic butter chicken, or as an alternative base for a Thai massaman curry. For best results, Basmati rice should be rinsed and then soaked for 30 minutes prior to cooking. All rice is naturally gluten free.

Basmati rice is renowned for its delightful aroma and long slender grains. When cooked, Basmati rice expands in length and produces a light, fluffy texture that is ideal for absorbing the flavours of your cooking. A drier rice, Basmati grains will remain separate, making it a staple of Indian cooking.

  • For the cooking of the basmati (or for any rice variety), to ensure beautifully separated grains, mix 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil into the rice before following packet instructions.

  • Combine the onion, garlic, curry leaves and oil in a large non-stick saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook until fragrant and onions are translucent.

  • Add the cumin & mustard seeds, turmeric and chilli and stir until spices smell roasted. Add stock, coconut milk, currants, vegetables, sugar and salt.

  • Simmer until the vegetables are tender. Serve hot with the basmati rice. Garnish with coriander.
