Scheherazade Smoked Label is said to be the longest rice in the world and currently the finest rice out of India. The kernels after cooking reach an average length of 20 mm.
The kernels do not stick to each other and rarely burst or break, though this rice naturally has a higher percentage of chalky (white belly) kernels. Our Smoked Label is currently the only smoked Basmati Rice in the EU market and has, of course, been pioneered by Basmati Rice GmbH (Europe). Only a small whiff at the rice will make you understand the special character of this very unique rice. This rice has been smoked at our facilities in Krefeld by a special blend/recipe of different woods.
Please note: As opposed to other Basmati Rice varieties, this rice should be cooked with less water and in a shorter time. We recommend 1 cup of rice to 1–1.1 cups of water.
