Basmati comes from the Hindi word for “fragrant,” and fittingly so. Basmati rice is all about the flavor and aroma, which is intensely spicy, nutty, and floral (compared to other rice that is, not hot sauce or cashews or like, actual flowers). The textural value lies in the fact that the long grains remain individual, non-sticky grains, allowing curry and other sauces to coat each grain for maximum flavor. And yeah, like we said, long-grain rice is perfect as sides for saucy dishes or the base of a pilaf.
