What's the best basmati rice?

I finally tried "Qilla excel", it was very close to original Zafarani Reserve.

Tilda & Kohinoor are more about advertising then taste. Don't go with the Hype.

I checked with Importer company, they claim started using new color bag. I told him straight that these are not same qty rice as the old in old bag. How I know, I still have some left from old bag & big difference.

I recommend stick with Old bag or don't pay for new bag average qty rice. You will be paying premium price for no reason.

Just an quick update Guys, their seems to be "FAKE" Zafarani Reserve rice with attractive & color package. Please DO NOT BUY that one, it has regular rice with premium price.

Just bought another Dawaat bag, it was of average qty. so I will not recommend anymore. Stick with Zafarani.

Also Markfed Rice is also very good, but hard to find.

starch.
It is better to rinse the rich till the water is clear & free of starch before cooking. But I heard rinsing does remove some vitamins as well in the process.

One more, I remember....
Very surprise discovery.
I tried Organic Basmati Rice from Walmart. It was similar to Zafarani "Reserve" Rice. But keep in mind you do have to pay at least twice. and then you are also getting organic.

I have tried almost all brands on rice & I considered myself now expert in it. (use 1 cup rice with 1.75 cup water, make sure to soak for 1/2 hour)

Longest & overall best rice are Zafarani "Reserve" Rice, they are usually $1-$2 more and not found is all stores. I have seen Store sell anywhere from $14.99-$18.99 for 10lbs.

2nd one is Dawaat.
Tilda is just above average.
India Gate, Royal, Kohinoor are just average.
