Basmati rice is native to Pakistan, Nepal and India. There are several varieties of basmati rice.

Why Organic Brown Basmati Rice? Part 1 - History - Be Still Farms Blog

Basmati rice that has not been hulled is known as brown basmati rice. This rice variety is considered a whole grain since it has all the edible parts of the rice including the bran, germ as well as the endosperm. As a result, brown basmati rice retains more of the grain’s fiber and nutrients compared to its white rice counterpart where the germ and bran have been removed.
