What actually is Basmati and Wild rice?
VeeTee Basmati and Wild combines aromatic basmati with the nuttiness of black wild rice. Basmati is known for its fragrant taste and smell, traditionally used in Indian cuisine. Did you know, it can only be grown in the Himalayan foothills of India and Pakistan? It’s got the same region rules as champagne. Fancy.
Wild rice comes from a different grass species than basmati. It’s mostly grown in North America and has a nutty flavour, varying in colour from medium brown to jet black.
