Atry Smoked Basmati Rice Review.

I am a rice lover. Well really I love almost all food, but I really love rice. I fancy myself a good cook, but I always wanted my rice to be better, well I have found the best rice I have ever had. Atry Smoked Basmati rice is phenomenal.

 I had never even heard of smoked rice before, let alone tried it. When I first saw this, I was instantly intrigued and just had to try it.

Upon first opening the bag you can smell the wonderful smoky scent, and it is really incredible. I already knew it would be delicious.

You rinse the rice, then soak in salted water for 15 minutes, then bring to a boil(uncovered). Once the water is not covering the rice add a little butter, stir, cover and simmer on low for 15 minutes. The rice will per perfect, and you will not need to add any more butter, salt, sauce or anything, it will be delicious as is.

The directions say 1-1.5 cups of water per cup of rice. I used 1.25 and it was perfect(to me).

This comes out big, tender(but not mushy) and stays separated(not clumpy). They texture is just as wonderful at the flavor.


As great as this is solo, I can only imagine what depth of flavor this will add to recipes. I look forward to trying this many different way.

If you love rice or anything smoked, I know this will be a great product for you. You can buy in some stores, but also online at Amazon.com You can also visit Smoked Basmati on Facebook for more information, recipes and locations.

  7. I bought this today. I prepared the rice according to package directions. It was perfect! A Pakistani restaurant I go to serves rice with lightly grilled onion and freshly squeezed lemon. I served it that way and I wasn't disappointed. Looking for more recipes to use with this rice.
