NATURE'S LONGEST BASMATI

What Is Super Kernel Basmati Rice?

Super Kernel is the ultimate basmati, nature’s longest Basmati rice. Bred after years of research in the paddy fields of Punjab, this rice is distinguished for its length, exceptional quality, exclusive aroma, and superb taste. Truly divine, Yum Asia's Super Kernel basmati is cultivated in northern Pakistan using Himalayan river water to quench it's thirst. It is carefully handpicked and then undergoes the process of ageing and partial steaming, which enables the rice to absorb nutrients and changes the starch so that it cooks into a firmer, less sticky dish of rice than regular white rice. It has an average grain length of 8.30mm which on cooking elongates to double its size. 

AUTHENTIC AND CAREFULLY SELECTED

What Makes Our Basmati Rice Special?

Yum Asia has sourced the finest Super Kernel rice by carefully selecting farmers of Pakistan who are geographically located to grow the best quality Super Kernel variety of grain. After cultivation every single grain has undergone thorough inspection by rice experts before reaching the our rice mill where it's sorted and quality checked by the strictest standards before export. We then sell it in generously sized 5kg pillow bags simply because we don't do small measures!

 

PRESTIGIOUS AND UNIQUE

Basmati Rice That Screams Authentic

There are several types of basmati rice types and it can be confusing. Yum Asia chose the Super Kernel variety after many months of extensively testing multiple rice mills and grain types. We then run the grain through a sequence of rice cooker and saucepan cooking cycles to make sure we get the best tasting grain with the optimal texture, grain length, aroma and most importantly excellent taste.

SELECTED FOR USE IN BOTH

Great In Rice Cookers Or Saucepans

Primarily used in central Asian dishes but is very versatile as a general white rice long grain for many dishes. More specifically Indian and Persian dishes such as complements to curries, pilau etc. Good for tempering spicy dishes and great texture for used as a base rice with sauce dishes or even as a dish in it's own right.

Our Super Kernel basmati has been carefully selected to ensure that it produces perfect results in our premium rice cookers but equally can be used in a saucepan (or microwave if required).

    Better than Tilda Rice. Long grain and value for money.

  2. Gloria (verified owner)

    Excellent and fast delivery. Well received. Perfect basmati rice with a very nice flavour and bite. Really good.

  3. Dorothy P (UK) (verified owner)

    It’s true that yumasia are rice cooker experts but with that they know their rice. This is simply the best basmati I have ever tasted. It’s wonderful!

  4. Jerome (verified owner)

    Really good Indian rice. The bag is massive. It will last me a long time. Tastes good – really good!

  5. Arleta M (UK) (verified owner)

    It’s difficult to get rice like this in Europe so I was happy to find it here in the UK. This super kernel is of good length and very good tasting. It works in my sakura rice cooker like a charm. The bag is resealable too so it keeps everything nice and tidy.

  6. Calvin (UK) (verified owner)

    2 days delivery because I messed up my address when ordering (sorry :()
    I love Indian food (wife is from South Asia) and regularly eat Basmati. This is some of the best I have had. It has good aged flavour with good length and no strange taste. Actually the taste is something tat really stands out. Very good purchase. If the wife lets me I will keep ordering more. Thank you

  7. Dave (UK) (verified owner)

    Great basmati now I need to cook better curry

    I eat a lot more rice now in lockdown so I wanted to get some good quality rice. Great basmati rice as good as the jasmine rice I bought previously.

  8. David S (verified owner)

    Goes great with curries. Very delicate flavour and individual rice grains that sit very well with anything I’ve put it with. My parents don’t usually like rice and even they were converted. 5 of 5

  9. Terry P (verified owner)

    Outstanding rice. Worth every penny. Full flavoured basmati that has a clean taste with fantastically long grains. Love it.

  10. Amazon Customer (UK) (verified owner)
