Kalijira white rice

There are hundreds of varieties of rice, ranging from the Bhutanese red to the tiny grains of kalijira from Bangladesh.

Kalijira white rice is a cute baby basmati. It needs to be handled just like basmati, with multiple rinsings and a relatively short steaming period.
This rice is one of aromatic rices. Aromatic ice is an umbrella term for rices with exceptional toasty, nutty flavor. Kalijira white rice is polished, white, very fancy, small grain rice that is grown in Myanmar, West Bengal, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh.

The pointy-shaped grains resemble basmati but on smaller scale. When cooked the rice is firm yet tender with separate grains.
