Mirza Baig, Director IP, Tribe Asia, said, “Windmill Festival was started with a vision to make it a global property.

Premium basmati rice brand Amira, in a delightful cook up with celebrity chef Ripu Daman Handa at Mumbai Exhibition.

Biryani is the ultimate pièce de résistance of many a feast. The NYSE listed Amira Specialty Food Company has been in operations over 100 years. It generates majority of its revenue from its premium long-grain basmati rice surely an affirmation of the prominence of basmati rice well established in the psyche of ordinary consumers and professional cooks alike, while preparing Biryani and other rice dishes. This slow-aged mature rice is cultivated at the base of the Himalayas in select parts of India and Pakistan. Amira basmati rice is very fragrant and has a nutty flavor, the two indispensable features of long-grained rice mentioned in ancient texts as well.
