Aromatic rice is one of the major types of rice. It is a medium- to long-grained rice. It is known for its nut-like aroma and taste, which is caused by the chemical compound 2-acetyl-1-pyrroline. Varieties of aromatic rice include basmati, jasmine, Texmati, Tulaipanji, Wehani, and wild pecan rice. When cooked, the grains have a light and fluffy texture.
