Rice is mainly produced and consumed in the Asian region. India has the largest area under Rice in the world and ranks second in the production after China. Country has also emerged as a major rice consumer. Rice is primarily a high energy calorie food. The major part of rice consists of carbohydrate in the form of starch, which is about 72-75 percent of the total grain composition. The protein content of rice is around 7 percent. The protein of rice contains glutelin, which is also known as oryzenin. The nutritive value of rice protein (biological value = 80) is much higher than that of wheat (biological value = 60) and maize (biological value = 50) or other cereals.

   Description

Basmati is known as “The prince of Rice “, and means the fragrant one due to its aroma. Basmati is a variety of long grain rice grown in India, Bangladesh and Pakistan, notable for its fragrance and delicate, nuanced flavor. Its name means "the fragrant one" in Sanskrit, but it can also mean "the soft rice". India is the largest cultivator, consumer and exporter of this rice; 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. Cooked grains of Basmati rice are characteristically free flowing rather than sticky, as with most long-grain rice. Cooked basmati rice can be uniquely identified by its fragrance. In addition to normal white Basmati rice, brown basmati is available, although uncommon. Basmati rice has a typical pandan-like (Pandanus fascicularis leaf) flavor caused by the aroma compound 2-acetyl-1-pyrroline. Basmati rice is often used for cooking Biryani, Pilaoand sometimes Kheer.
