Nur Jahan is one of KRBL’s prized brands and keeps the flavor, aroma and the looks of Basmati rice intact. 

Fine, long and firm – these are the stellar qualities of the Basmati rice grain that comes from India Gate, a well known rice brand. India Gate has long been known for its pearly white grains which come in various pack sizes and are of export quality as well.

This rice is different from other rice mainly due to the aroma and length post cooking. Basmati rice is grown only in Northern India and the world's most relished Basmati rice is cultivated in the foothills of Himalayas. Soil and climate of the region account for the unique aroma, taste and texture of basmati rice. Its perfumed, nut like flavour and aroma can be attributed to the fact that the grain is aged, to decrease its moisture content. When cooked, it swells only lengthwise, thereby resulting in long slender grains that are dry, separate and fluffy. India Gate Basmati as no other rice in the world has these characteristics in combination. It has an unforgettable aroma and taste that will linger in your mind forever.


Few of the most famous dishes made preferably with Basmati rice are: Biryani (cooked with various vegetables and /or meat) Pulao ­(cooked with various vegetables or meat) Sweet rice pudding or Kheer (with fruits, milk and ghee) Plain rice (served with lentils soup called dal or sambhar)
