In addition to its unique smell, it is considered the prince of rice with its long and fine grain. It is originated in India and grown in Punjab province. Punjab means "five water". This state has become a rice paradise thanks to the delta formed by five rivers passing through it. The region, which is located on the foothills of the Himalaya mountains, whose source is the waters and melting ice, is a wonderful environment for the growth of Basmati rice. The most important feature of Basmati rice is that it is a type of rice that can grow twice as long after cooking. It has a distinctive roasted hazelnut smell.
