On The Move Organics, White Basmati Rice - 625g
Long-grain, aromatic, and versatile, Basmati Rice will take you on a trek through South Asia. Escape into a food adventure and let our Basmati Rice inspire tonight’s dinner! Unlike Arborio Rice, Basmati is not starchy. Instead, Basmati Rice is soft, fluffy, and retains its shape once cooked. Nutty and earthy in fragrance and flavor, Basmati is delightful on its own, as well as an ideal vehicle to carry other foods. Top your rice with curries, sauces, sautés, and stews to expand your Basmati horizons! Use Basmati Rice for both sweet and savory applications.
HOW TO COOK IT: 15 minutes to the best rice!
Basmati Rice uses a classic 2:1 ratio; 1 part rice, 2 parts water. To begin, soak desired amount in water for up to 30 minutes. Drain and rinse thoroughly. Set rice and water in a deep pan over medium heat. Once up to a simmer, cover, lower heat, and cook for 10 minutes. Turn off heat and allow rice to sit for 5 minutes.
CULINARY TWIST: A spice journey!
We love one-dish meals, particularly oven bakes! Replace your usual rice with Basmati for chicken and rice bakes. Since you’re using Basmati, take the opportunity to use exotic spices in your bake; such as cumin seeds, coriander powder, and garam masala! Try using Basmati in your rice pudding recipes as well! Basmati is wonderful carrier of flavors. How does cardamom-spiced chocolate rice pudding sound?
ABOUT BASMATI RICE: Did you know?
Basmati is a Sanskrit word meaning "fragrant” – and is it ever! Cooked Basmati Rice exudes subtle notes of nuts, warm milk, and creamed-corn.
HOW TO STORE BASMATI RICE: Bagged and ready!
Store your Basmati Rice in an air-sealed bag for up to 24 months.
This is an ON THE MOVE ORGANICS ZERO-WASTE product!
As environmental activists, we are serious about reducing waste at every stage of the farm to table journey of food. With that in mind, we've launched our own On The Move Organics Zero-Waste product line: high quality organic pantry staples, coffee, tea, and condiments packaged in recoverable glass jars. This program allows us to buy organic items in bulk ( = less waste through the distribution stage), and then retail in recoverable glass jars ( = zero waste at the consumption stage).
HOW DOES IT WORK?
All our Zero-Waste Products have a $1 deposit. When you're done with the jar, wash it out and return it in your On The Move Organics bin. We'll return that deposit to you on your next order. We wash and re-use the jars.
