An aromatic rice, Wehani is the result of a ten year breeding program, started with an Indian Basmati-type rice seed. Cooked Wehani has the scent of hot buttered peanuts. This is a brown rice, with the nutritious bran layer intact. An interesting surprise is that it turns an earthy honey-red color when cooked.
