£2.09

Long-grain rice that’s only grown in India, organic brown basmati has a deep nutty taste and aromatic fragrance. It’s unprocessed, so the bran layer is kept intact and the rice is nutritious and full-flavoured.

The texture’s fluffier than short-grained varieties, so it’s especially good for stuffing dolmades and sopping up a rich curry or stew. Or try it with just a splash of soy sauce as a side to chicken or fish, or throw a handful raw into soups or cooked into salads to give them a bit more substance.

How to store brown basmati rice

Brown basmati rice has a higher oil content than white rice, so it won’t last nearly as long. Store it somewhere cool and dark and it’ll keep well for 6 months. Or, if there’s space for it in your fridge or freezer it’ll be happy there for up to a year.

Store cooked rice in the fridge and eat within 48 hours.
