Organic Traditional Dehraduni Basmati Rice
Lotus Foods is honored and proud to extend its line of exceptional heirloom, organic and specialty rices with an authentic Indian basmati – Dehraduni basmati. Dehraduni basmati is a long slender, aromatic grain that almost doubles in length when cooked. The word ‘basmati’ comes from the Sanskrit word for ‘fragrant.’
Dehraduni’s famed flavor, fragrance and elongation are what elevated basmati rice to one of the world’s most recognized and best-loved rices. Dehraduni basmati is like champagne. Everyone knows that to be called ‘champagne,’ it must be from the Champagne region of France. It’s the same with Dehraduni basmati, which originated centuries ago in the Doon Valley of Uttarakhand State, India. This traditional basmati has been distinguished by the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity for conservation due to threats to its cultivation from urbanization and modern hybrids.
We source our certified organic Dehraduni rice from selected farms in Uttarakhand. The women and men who grow the rice use More Crop Per Drop™ practices that are Water Smart and Women Strong. When you purchase this rice you Do The Rice Thing, promoting women- and climate-friendly farming, and preserving rice heritage.
