Product Marketing

Our pure Basmati Rice is a single variety premium grain selected from known farmers from the West Punjab, the true home of Basmati. Aged for up to 18 months, White Pearl Basmati Rice has a milky colour, indicating that it is not over polished and hence retains more nutrients, flavour and aroma. This ensures the superior quality.

White Pearl Basmati Rice is extremely versatile and is used in most cuisines including English, Chinese and Indian dishes.

Preparation and Usage

Cook to Perfection
For best results we recommend you prepare as follows. Before cooking rinse rice and pre-soak for 15-20 minutes in cold water.
1 cup 250g (8oz) of uncooked rice provides four generous portions. Cook as per any of the following methods.

Quick Preparation
1. Bring to the boil a large saucepan containing approximately four times as much water as rice (by volume).
2. Add the rice, stir once and bring back to boil. Boil rapidly for approximately 2 minutes uncovered and reduce heat to simmer and slow cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until rice is tender.
3. Drain excess water in sieve then serve.

Traditional Preparation
1. Put twice as much water as rice (by volume) in a large saucepan with a pinch of salt if desired and bring water to the boil.
2. Add rice, stir once and bring back to boil for 1 minute, reduce heat to simmer, replacing lid.
3. Allow the rice to cook for 7-10 minutes without disturbing.
4. If the liquid is not completely absorbed, cook for a few minutes longer.
5. Remove from heat and allow saucepan to stand for 5 minutes before serving.


Store in a cool dry place.
