Prepared brown basmati riceWhat Is Basmati Rice?


Basmati is one of the best known varieties of rice out there. The word "basmati" comes from the Sanskrit word "vasmati" which means "fragrant" or "aromatic." Long-grained, extremely aromatic, with a light nutty flavour, basmati is grown in the north of India and Pakistan, mainly using traditional growing methods.

Rice — A Sweet, Sattvic Ayurvedic Delight


Rice is not only a staple food around the world but is a cultural symbol for fertility, health and wealth in many countries. In our own country it is customary to throw rice at a newlywed couple, symbolizing wishes for fertility and prosperity. In India it is believed that Lord Vishnu caused the Earth to give birth to rice, and that the god Indra taught the people how to raise it. Rice is used for worship, and colored powdered rice is used to create beautiful works of art in the form of mandalas in the Far East. In these countries, rice is treated with reverence and associated with elaborate planting rituals.

There are several dozen varieties of rice. Some of the common varieties of rice include jasmine, Texmati, Calmati, Japanese, arboria, brown rice, wild rice and basmati rice According to ayurveda, basmati rice is the king of all rices. Basmati rice is sattvic, or pure; it balances all three doshas; it is nourishing for the body tissues; and it is easy to digest. Aged basmati rice has an aroma and flavor arguably the best in the world. Ayurveda recommends avoiding rice that is parboiled, instant or pre-cooked because is has less nutrition and less prana, or life energy, in it.
