Basmati rice originates from India and Pakistan where several hunderds of varieties exist. It differs from ordinary rice in its long grain and distinctive nutty aroma.
Basmati is expensive and mostly consumed on special occasions only. There has been some commotion when a US company was granted patent for a hybrid they named American basmati.
