The Indian basmati specialty, colorful like a Bollywood wedding, stands for happiness, fertility and joie de vivre and turns every dish into a glamorous celebration. Glam Wedding Pink is famous for its fine fruity scent, which it owes to fine orange essences and extracts from Chinese sea buckthorn.
The organic rice is grainy - light and is ideal for meat dishes, fish, game and fine vegetables. Due to its comparatively short cooking time, it is also suitable as a fine dish for in between meals.
Myth about the origin of the “Glam Wedding Pink” “Akhil, one of the sons of Bimisara, was chosen to marry the adversary's daughter. No matter how much Akhil pleaded, the powerful Maharajah would not be persuaded. The night before the wedding, Akhil snuck into the beautiful Ambar, whom he had loved for as long as he could remember. When the girl understood that there was no hope for her, she took Akhil's hand and led him to the rice fields by the river. There she picked a red and a blue flower. Together they scattered the petals to the wind and watched as they settled on the rice plants. That night they slept in a passionate embrace by the river. When they woke up the following morning, the petals were gone. But the rice panicles bore deep pink grains. Akhil picked a handful of them and brought them to his father. He related that the wind, water and earth created a testimony of his love for Ambar. This is stronger than his dynastic mission. Now the Maharajah's heart softened. He, who had 500 wives, bowed to his son's only love. He organized a wedding feast for Akhil and Ambar, which lasted many days and was the most magnificent ever celebrated in India. The bride wore stalks of rice with pink grains in her hair. The couple is said to have been blessed with many children.”
