Basmati is a fragrant, nutty-tasting long grain rice grown in the Himalayas and Pakistan. Bas in Hindi language means aroma and mati means full of, hence the word Basmati or full of aroma. The key to making basmati rice that is light, tender and fluffy is to rinse it first, otherwise, the grains will be gummy and stick together. It only takes a minute or two. Simply place the rice in a bowl with water, and then swish it around to release any excess starch. The water will be cloudy at first but after several rinses, it will be clear.
