As we all know Basmathi rice not cheap. This import must be essential to some rich people in Sri Lanka. We buy basmathi rice for $9 for a 10lb bag in California. Then we buy keeri samba rice for $14 for a 10lb bag form a Sri Lankan store. It is cheaper to buy basmathi rice in US. However, we don't eat basmathi rice a lot because it is not helping us to keep our body weight down. Do you know that there is Texas basmathi rice in the US as well.
