    Default Brown Basmatic Rice info

    A few months ago, I did find an Indian grocer carrying brown basmatic
    rice (10 lbs), the one I bought before, and it was $18.00. Same price
    as white version. (They both were $10.00 a while). The lady told me
    that she'd be raising it to $20.00.

    Today, I called Trader's Joe to see what brand brown rice they have -
    I have bought brown rice medley frpm them in the past - and found out
    that they have brown basmati (2lbs for $2.99). If it is exactly like
    the one I got from the Indian store (I assume that it would be), I am
    buying from Trader's Joe from now on.

    I have bought long grain brown rice (Lundberg brand ) from Raley's -
    they have per lb purchase option; it's $1.19 or $1.29 per lb. After
    eating Brown basmatic, that kidn of brown rice tastes like white rice
    to me. I am going to use that to make fried rice.

    I bought some last year at Trader Joes and I don't think it is nearly as
    good as the brown basmati I buy at the Indian market.

    Rice Select/Texmati has three different kinds of brown rice in a
    long-grain basmati-like strain. They are all excellent. You can
    find them at CostCo, at least. I'm pretty sure the brand is sold
    nationwide (and it's US-grown).

    India is trying to disclaim it's basmati origin, and they're
    probably right. It's not basmati, but it's very similar and just as
    good. I especially like their Kasmati variety. And their royal
    blends are good as well (I've only tried the one with wild and red
    rice).

    I used to use "Tilda" brand basmati; first white rice version and
    then later brown. Now, i can only find one store that sells "Kohinoor"
    brand; it's very good though.

    I have used Texmati white rice long time ago; it was very good.

    I am getting Costco membership; I didn't before because the store is a
    little out of the way for me.

    I think the Rice select is good quality but the import (both brown and
    white basmati) stuff I get is better quality. So I wouldn't switch
    unless I couldn't get the import stuff.

    I was thinking to make fried rice and am planning to pick up Lundberg
    long grain brown rice cus last time I tried,, it tasted more like
    white rice and I think it would be work for fried rice. Brown Basmati
    might taste ok but in a different way..
