I bought it to make rice water hair masks I haven’t tried it yet so all i can say is that its a bit smaller than what i anticipated its like the size of a rectangular make up bag but thats on me for not reading the measurements :)
The grains are short and easy to break. They lack the flavour and texture of real basmati. After just one rinse, the grains broke into tiny bits. When cooked, they have neither the aroma nor fluffiness associated with quality rice grains. Simply put, these grains are NOT real basmati. I have done a comparison between these fake "basmati grains with my Thai jasmine rice grains. On the left side of the first two photos are Thai jasmine rice grains, on the right are those poor quality fake "basmati" grains. As the photos clearly show, even Thai rice grains are longer. The third photo shows how those grains break after just one rinse. The price is outrageous for such a tiny bag of rice with no flavour and no aroma. This product is a huge rip off and waste of money. Unfortunately, once it's open, it cannot be returned. I find iherb's return policy a joke because it does not accept opened merchandise. How are you supposed to know if you are satisfied with a product without opening it first?
