Aar Cee Superior Brown Basmati rice is a fragrant extra long grain rice. It shines brightest in traditional Indian and Middle Eastern dishes, but you will find this incredible product translates perfectly to whatever fits your table. Tender and delicate, the grains are fluffy and are separate after cooking. Aged to perfection, this aromatic rice is a fantastic addition to any meal.

Our basmati rice comes all the way from India, where it is re-cleaned in Vancouver, ensuring a superior product. It is not put through bleaching, pearling, oiling, or powdering processes, letting it retain its natural flavour and high nutritional value. Before cooking, we recommend washing it in several changes of cold water. As easy to prepare as white rice, brown basmati has more vitamins, minerals and fibre. Whole-grain brown basmati is slightly nutty and chewier than white rice. Try substituting it in your next meal and taste the difference for yourself.
