The History of Sella Basmati Rice
The story of Sella Basmati Rice is a fascinating journey that dates back to ancient times. Basmati rice itself has a rich history, with references found in ancient Indian texts. It is a prized grain that has been part of the Indian and Pakistani cuisines for centuries. The word 'Basmati' translates to 'fragrant' or 'aromatic,' reflecting the grain's appealing, natural aroma.
The process of parboiling rice, which results in Sella Basmati Rice, is thought to have originated in the Indian subcontinent thousands of years ago. This process was designed to drive nutrients from the husk into the grain, enhancing its nutritional profile. It also helped in preserving the rice for longer periods and made it easier to remove the husk without damaging the grain.
Sella Basmati Rice, with its distinctive golden color, came into being as a result of this age-old method of parboiling. Despite its ancient origins, Sella Basmati Rice gained prominence in western countries, including the USA, only in recent decades. Today, it is esteemed for its unique texture, flavor, and health benefits, making it a preferred choice for a wide array of dishes across different cuisines.
Yaseen Mills is proud to be part of this rich history, offering the finest quality Sella Basmati Rice that meets the highest standards of quality and taste. With our commitment to tradition and quality, we ensure that every grain of our Sella Basmati Rice offers a unique culinary experience, one that honors its historical roots and meets the demands of modern-day gourmet experiences.

Elongated Grains: Sella Basmati Rice is renowned for its long, slender grains. When cooked, these grains can expand to almost twice their original size. Their elongation, combined with their non-sticky texture, adds visual appeal to any culinary creation.

The Health Benefits of Sella Basmati Rice
Sella Basmati Rice not only offers a delightful sensory experience but also contributes significantly to a nutritious diet. Here are some key health benefits of incorporating this remarkable grain into your meals:
Rich in Nutrients: Sella Basmati Rice retains more of the nutrients compared to regular white rice due to the parboiling process. It's a good source of essential nutrients, including several B vitamins, selenium, zinc, and magnesium.
High in Fiber: The parboiling process helps to push some of the vitamins and minerals from the husk into the grain, ensuring they are retained even after the husk is removed. This process increases the dietary fiber content, aiding digestion and promoting a feeling of fullness.
Low Glycemic Index: Sella Basmati Rice has a lower glycemic index (GI) compared to regular white rice. Foods with a lower GI are digested more slowly, causing a slower rise in blood sugar levels, making it a better choice for people with diabetes.
Promotes Heart Health: Being low in fat, cholesterol, and sodium, Sella Basmati Rice is a heart-friendly choice. The fiber content also contributes to heart health by helping to lower cholesterol levels.
Provides Energy: As a complex carbohydrate, Sella Basmati Rice provides a steady release of energy, making it an excellent food choice for those needing sustained energy throughout the day.
Gluten-Free: Like all rice, Sella Basmati Rice is naturally gluten-free, making it a safe and tasty choice for individuals with celiac disease or those following a gluten-free diet.
It's clear that Sella Basmati Rice is not just about taste and texture; it also plays a role in a balanced diet. At Yaseen Mills, our Sella Basmati Rice is processed with the utmost care to maintain its nutritional value, providing you with a healthy and delicious product.

How to Prepare Sella Basmati Rice
Preparing Sella Basmati Rice might require a bit more time and attention compared to regular rice, but the flavorful and aromatic results are truly worth it. Here are the steps to perfectly prepare your Sella Basmati Rice:
Rinsing: First, measure the rice according to your requirements. Pour it into a bowl and rinse it thoroughly under cold water. Repeat the process until the water runs clear. This step helps to remove any remaining starch, which can cause the rice to stick together.
Soaking: After rinsing, soak the Sella Basmati Rice in a generous amount of water. Let it sit for at least 2-3 hours. This soaking process allows the rice to absorb water, which aids in cooking and helps the grains to expand to their full length.
Draining: Once the rice has been adequately soaked, drain the water using a colander. Let the rice sit in the colander for around 15-20 minutes to ensure all excess water is removed.
Cooking: After draining, add the rice to a pot and pour in fresh water. A good rule of thumb is to add 1.5 to 2 parts water for each part of rice, but this can depend on the specific brand of rice and your personal preference for how soft you want your rice.
Boiling: Bring the pot to a boil. Once the water is boiling, reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let it simmer. Allow it to cook for around 15-20 minutes, or until the rice is tender and all the water has been absorbed. Avoid stirring the rice too often as it can break the grains.
Resting: After the rice is cooked, turn off the heat and let it sit, covered, for about 5-10 minutes. This allows the rice to continue steaming and ensures all the grains are fully cooked.
Fluffing: Finally, using a fork, gently fluff the rice to separate the grains before serving. This helps to release any remaining steam and stops the grains from sticking together.
And voila! Your Sella Basmati Rice is ready to be served. It can be used in a variety of dishes, from rich biryanis to wholesome stir-fries, or simply enjoyed as a flavorful side dish. Enjoy the aromatic and delicious experience that is Sella Basmati Rice from Yaseen Mills
How to Cook and Serve Sella Basmati Rice
Now that your Sella Basmati Rice is prepared, it's time to cook and serve it. This versatile grain lends itself to a plethora of dishes and can be beautifully incorporated into various cuisines. Here are some basic guidelines:
Cooking Sella Basmati Rice
In a saucepan, add the prepared (soaked and drained) Sella Basmati Rice along with water. The typical ratio is 1 cup rice to 1.5-2 cups of water, depending on how tender you want your rice.
Add a pinch of salt for flavor enhancement. You could also add a dash of oil or a teaspoon of ghee (clarified butter) to give the rice a richer taste and prevent sticking.
Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover the saucepan, and let it simmer for around 15-20 minutes or until the water is fully absorbed and the rice is tender.
Once the rice is cooked, remove from heat and let it rest, covered, for about 5-10 minutes. This allows the grains to firm up and the residual steam to distribute evenly.
Finally, fluff the rice gently with a fork to separate the grains and release any remaining steam. Your Sella Basmati Rice is now ready to be served!
