Typical rice in the US is by far too starchy, and this is likely the reason less Americans like rice in general. In Asia, they like jasmine rice, and in the US, people think that there is only 1 or 2 kinds of rice.
I cook my rice in a rice cooker, and I do not rinse my rice first (it takes away some of the nutrients), and I use a little more water than is recommended (about 2:1 water, as opposed to 1 1/2:1). Basmati rice come up fluffy, aromatic, having a pleasant sweet taste, and mixes well with anything like vegetables, chicken, etc. The Royal Basmati rice is better than other brands, like Mahatma.
I am glad that I bought a 15 pound bag, as it cost me $5.00 for a 2 pound bag of Mahatma, A very good price break for sure. I will tell you, if you like rice, but have never tried Basmati, you will be in for a treat. If you like other Basmati brands, you should try Royal. If you cannot use a 15 pound bag within a year, you should pack it in vacuum bags, then it will last forever.
Right now the price at amazon is pretty competitive - 17 for a 15 pound bag! Go buy it!
Either amazon changed the product or the manufacturer updated the packing. The one i bought and like come in a brown jute bag with a big Royal label on it. Not sure how good this one is.
April 2012 Update
Amazon is selling the product in its original packing now. I am confident of buying again now. Yay!!!!
Royal Basmati Rice brings eating rice to a new level. I first learned about it a few years ago in New Orleans at a combination Middle Eastern restaurant/grocery. The owner there had not heard someone from Mississipi talk before, and he kept following me around the store because he was fascinated with my accent. He asked me if I was from Scotland. He sold me my first bag of Royal Basmati. "This is what we use to feed our customers," he said. I had no idea that rice could taste that good.
Here is the way the Royal people recommend you cook it:
Cooking Instructions for Stovetop
1 cup of uncooked Royal Basmati Rice yields 3 cups cooked Rice.
Measure: 1 cup of rice, 1 ½ cups of water, 1 tablespoon of oil, butter or margarine, a pinch of salt.
1. Rinse measured rice 1 to 2 times or until water is clear to remove extra starch and drain.
2. Place the drained rice into the saucepan and add measured water, oil and salt.
3. Place saucepan (uncovered) over high heat and bring to boil, stir occasionally.
4. Let water reduce slightly below the rice level and the lower the heat to the minimum.
5. Place a tight lid on the saucepan and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
Herre is the way we cook it:
We don't wash it. We simply place 1 cup of Basmati rice and 2 cups water in a Calphalon Tri-Ply Stainless-Steel 8-Quart Stockpot with Glass Lid.Read more ›

I received the 20-pound bag but it was in a cloth sack (not a plastic sack as shown in the picture). That said, Amazon did issue me a full refund. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Mustafa
