Basmati from Almora (short-grained)

Regular price Rs. 120.00

For the short-grained Basmati we have taken inspiration from Japanese Plum Rice, and Bengalee alubokhra’r khichudi from Prajnasundari Devi’s cookbook, both of which use a variety of plum in their specific ways. We have added macerated taal shaash because of their seasonality with a plum treacle, with some brined plums to top off everything. 

 

about

Basmati has a long-standing love affair with the cuisine of the sub-continent. Its first mention can be found in Ain-i-Akbari, where A’bul Fazl records it being cultivated as Mushkeen, the red-husked variety of the white Basmati. It also is noted to be quite a prized rice variety in the tale of Heer Ranjha, written in 1766. This one, here, is the short-grained variety of Basmati, sourced from the lower areas of Bageshwar district, about 75kms from Almora.

what you can cook with

The short-grained Basmati, we suggest, is better used as a table rice or at most in a khichudi or kheer/payesh. It pairs beautifully well with fruity, salty-sweet flavours. However, you can easily use it whichever way you want, in a simple meal with daal and bhaja or a lavish one.
