I found a 20-lb bag of the above Indian rice at a south Asian store. Does anyone here know about it? The grains are the tiniest I have ever seen in a rice.
This is truly the nicest, tastiest, most satisfying rice I've ever eaten. FWIW. I saw mention of it on a website devoted to the genuine, traditional Ayurvedic practice, not the N. Americanized version. The man there says that Basmati is overrated and sona masoori is the real thing instead, according to "true" ayurveda. Just passing it along. I don't ever want to go back to any other type of white rice. By the way, I hear that sona masoori is also available in an unrefined (brown) version. However, brown rice requires special treatment to deal with the antinutrients in it.
