Basmati, Organic Brown

Packed with whole grain goodness, Long Grain Brown rice enjoys great popularity. It is an aromatic rice with the fragrance of Indian Basmati, but no elongation. An exotic choice when a fluffy, drier texture and an exotic aroma is desired, e.g., stir fry, salads, stuffing, pilaf, desserts.

Available in 25 lb. Bulk

Cooking Instructions

  • 1 cup Lundberg® Brown Basmati rice
  • 1¾ cups water or broth
  • 1 tbsp. butter (optional)
  • salt to taste

Combine rice, water, and butter (optional) in a pot and bring to a boil. Cover with a tight-fitting lid, reduce heat to low-simmer, and cook for 40 minutes. Remove from heat (with lid on!) and steam for 10 minutes. Fluff with fork.

*If rice is crunchy at the end of cooking time, it may be necessary to add 1-2 Tbsp. liquid and cook longer.

    So if I just wanted to make one serving (1/4 cup dry) would I still follow the same Rice to water Ratio and same cooking time?  So for one serving 1/4 cup dry to 1/2 cup water and same Boil, 50 Minute Simmer, 10 minute sit?  

    Thanks for the advice!

    Hi Alan, When cooking small quantities of rice, we recommend you use what we call the "Pasta Method." Here's what you do:  
    1. Fill a large pot with water and bring to boiling.
    2. Pour in measured amount of rice and begin timing.
    3.  Check the rice toward the end of the cooking time and test for tenderness.
    4.  When the texture is to your liking, remove from heat and drain the water off, catching the cooked rice in a fine sieve.
    5. Drain well and return to cooking pot, cover and let steam for 5-7 minutes.
    6. Fluff with a fork and serve.
    Let us know if you have any other questions! We hope you enjoy the rice :)
