I am no expert but I was told by several Indian grocers that the highest quality basmati rice is made by Lal Qila and is called "Traditional" special old malai dehraduni.

Can be harder to find, is more expensive but since trying it that is all I buy now.

The other Lal Qila rices (there are many) are not the same.

Where do you generally buy it from? I would love to try. Have had real basmati rice from Dehradun and it is the best I ever had.

India Gate has different varieties of Basmatti rice. Besides having variant taste qualities, some are better at water absorption and won't necessarily get as mushy or sticky as some of the lower grade qualities of Basmatti.

Few years ago, I noticed they had after taste which wasn't appealing. So my thought is, wash it twice in warm water prior to putting pot on the stove. Now a days I noticed that India Gate Basmati is not bad at all.
