I love basmati white rice - it's replaced any other white rice that I used. Fluffier is a good word for it.

Sparkpeople keeps educating us by posting recipes-this one included basmati rice which is unknown to me so--
I went to my sparkpoint page to goggle(basmati rice)
an learned this:
Basmati rice may be found in the gourmet section of your supermarket or at a Middle Eastern grocer.

What is Basmati Rice? Basmati rice is a rice popular not only for its flavor, but for its fragrance. It is remarkably long for a rice, and becomes longer still when cooked. It can be either brown or white with the brown variety having more flavor. When cooked, the rice is lighter and more fluffy than standard white rice, and does not stick together.

Basmati rice is a type of rice grown in the Himalayas and Pakistan. It is a long grain rice that is characterized by a light nutty flavor.

Recipe:Basmati rice with figs, mustard seeds and ginger- serves 6
