About the Product

Fudco Broken Basmati Rice is a type of rice that is made from broken grains of basmati rice. Basmati rice is a long-grain rice variety known for its fragrant aroma, delicate flavor, and slender grains. When basmati rice grains break during processing, they are often packaged and sold as "broken basmati rice." This broken rice retains the characteristic aroma and flavor of traditional basmati rice but cooks faster and is more affordable.

Recipes

Fudco Broken Basmati Rice, like other types of rice, can offer several benefits:

  • Quick Cooking: Broken basmati rice cooks faster than whole grains of basmati rice, making it a convenient option for those who want the flavor and aroma of basmati rice without the longer cooking time.
  • Cost-Effective: Broken basmati rice is often more affordable than whole basmati rice, making it a budget-friendly choice for households.
  • Basmati Flavor and Aroma: It retains the characteristic aroma and flavor of basmati rice, known for its fragrant, nutty, and slightly floral notes.
  • Versatility: You can use Fudco Broken Basmati Rice in a wide range of rice-based dishes, including biryanis, pulaos, fried rice, and more, just like whole basmati rice.
  • Texture: It still provides a pleasant texture with fluffy and separate grains when cooked correctly.
  • Nutrition: Like whole basmati rice, broken basmati rice is a source of carbohydrates and energy. It's low in fat and contains essential nutrients like vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins and manganese.
  • Gluten-Free: Rice, including basmati rice, is naturally gluten-free, making it suitable for individuals with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease.
  • Digestibility: Rice is generally easy to digest, making it a suitable choice for many people, including those with sensitive stomachs.

It's important to note that while broken basmati rice offers these benefits, the nutritional content may vary depending on the brand and processing methods. For detailed nutritional information, you should refer to the specific product packaging or contact the manufacturer.
