Any rice other than basmati rice is called non-basmati rice. There are thousands of varieties of rice but India produces the maximum varieties in the world. Non- basmati rice comes in different shapes and sizes. Some are long and slender, some are short and thick, some are like beads, and some may be round. None have the same characteristics as basmati rice i.e. they do not have both the aroma and post-cooking elongation. Only some of the long slender rice is shaped like basmati rice and may have either the aroma or the elongation but not both.
