Unlike its counterparts, basmati rice has a distinct flavour and aroma that lingers after it is cooked. This is because of the presence of a compound known as 2-acetyl-1-pyrroline in basmati rice. Basmati has an unusually long grain, which gives it its unique quality of being able to absorb water along its length while remaining firm and separate. It has a delicate flavour which makes it more flavorful when steamed, roasted, or stir-fried with some butter or ghee(clarified butter).
