    China ignores Pakistan's concerns, approves Indian basmati imports:laugh::laugh::lol::lol::lol:


    BEIJING: China has made a rare trade move opening up import channels for Indian basmati rice although it might hurt exports of similar produce from its close ally, Pakistan. According to sources, this is a politically sensitive move that suggests that Beijing is no more willing to walk the extra mile to protect Pakistan's interests.

    China has been importing Pakistani aromatic rice for the past few years. Islamabad is known to have been persuading China not to allow Indian basmati because it will affect its already small export basket. What is more, Pakistan has begun to push China to buy more of its cotton yarn after New Delhi slapped a partial ban on cotton exports.

    Though New Delhi and Beijing signed the basmati protocol 2006, it has taken China over five years to give the green signal because the Pakistan factor played a role in its thinking, sources said.

    In Singapore I had Pakistani basmati and Indian basmati.

    Though the Pakistani basmati was highly touted by the shopkeeper, I found the Indian basmati better in grain, though neither had the aroma of Dehra Dun basmati that I used to have in my childhood!

    The Chinese are sharp customers. Again my experience in Singapore and Malaysia.

    They know what is money's worth!

    What is the ultimate China's policy with India? Why does Pakistan get "Angst" with every friendly move by China towards India? It looks like China is trying very hard to keep India in her camp by making friendly gestures.

    Indian's rice produce is nolike Chinese, not stable, base on monsoon, obviously, your guys' basmati are organic rice which is scarce resource in China.
    you guys may have not know how to polish bad/mouldy rice using poisonous chemicals like Chinese, so Indian rice will be popular. come to save us, India China bhai bhai.
    answer my questions one year ago.
    What's Indian rice price now?
    my avatar's place, Sikh(Punjab) products 50% food for India?

    Seems like the higher than mountain is submerging in the deeper than Indian ocean.

    Strategically India should not export agricultural products & scarce minerals to china.

    Could some Chinese poster tell us about 'Glutinous rice'?

    Is it Glutinous by breed, or does it become glutinous because of the cooking process.

    I am not meaning Congee.

    Southern coastal provinces rely hugely on import of rice especially from Thailand, and Vietnam, owing to scarce arable lands.

    It is a breed of rice, Oryza sativa var. glutinosa. Matsum, is a example of it. Can't make normal rice glutinous by cooking process... Countries like China, Korea, Vietnam and Japan, uses it to make dish such as rice cake

    Basmati is an expensive gourmet rice, used in high end rice based Indian cuisine. Asians use chopsticks to shovel(for lack of a better word)sticky short grained glutinous rice from a bowl(typically!) into ones mouth.

    Basmati long grained, non-glutinous and has a very distinctive subcontinental aroma when boiled.

    To me Asian cuisine and Basmati(or for that matter any long grained Himalayan strains) are incompatible.

    BTW the Yanks tried to rip-off Basmati rice by growing a similar long grained, brownish strain in Texas(Texmati). The taste is completely different..:shocked:
