A.K.A

Kalijira rice also goes by the names govinda bhog and baby basmati.

What is it?

This aromatic, milled, medium-grain rice from Bangladesh isnown as the “prince of rice” for its delicate, deliciously nutty flavor.

Its tiny, needle-shaped grains remain separate and fluffy when cooked into a pilaf and produce a rich, luscious rice pudding when cooked in milk.

Don’t have it?

Substitute white basmati.

How to store:

Keep in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to 1 year.
