The finest quality Basmati can only be sourced from the heart of the best and most fertile land of Punjab, Pakistan. Many knowledgeable caterers and consumers already know that no other Basmati can compare with the delicate aroma, delicious flavour and delightful tenderness of authentic Pakistani Basmati. Traditional harvesting, deft handling and delicate processing make Shahzadal Basmati so different. Its pure white grains absorb more water during cooking which results in even longer fluffy, deliciously fine and separate grains.
Cooking Instructions 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 5-7 minutes or until rice is tender. 3. Drain well and 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.
