My favorite basmati for Persian Rice,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Royal Basmati Rice, 15-Pound Bag (Grocery)
Royal basmati makes a consistently aromatic and slightly nutty-flavored Persian rice (Chelo); I have used this brand for decades. It is a definite advantage for cooks such as myself to have the 15 pound bag available conveniently from Amazon, not to mention the low competitive price. This rice can be used in any manner you would use typical white rice, but it definitely shines when cooked in the Middle-eastern manner. I have never failed to receive raves about the wonderful light texture, nutty flavor and heavenly aroma of Royal basmati rice. And for those familiar with Middle-eastern cuisine, the tahdig (buttery crust) formed is always savory crisp and rich flavored. Other brands may also be delicious but I've never seen fit to check; I look no further than Royal and go directly to Amazon to order it.

I agree with you on how good the rice is, but "low competitive price"? I can pick these up from Costco or Sam's or my local indian grocer for $17.

I agree with you wholeheartedly; at the time I wrote this (2 years ago), the price was nowhere near what it is now.
