Sugandha Sella Biryani Rice is a basmati rice cultivar which has been parboiled or partially parboiled while still in its husk before being processed. Sella is essentially biryani rice that has been parboiled. This rice, on the other hand, is not like other parboiled long grain rice, which has the distinct aroma of parboiled rice. The paddy is soaked and steamed under pressure in the first phase. After that, the paddy is dried before going through the milling process.
