Use to make: You will fall in love with this indigenous, healthy whole grain which complements wonderfully both savoury and sweet dishes. Use it with stir-fry veggies, salad side dishes, Mediterranean recipes,  dosa, idli, sweet kheer or a pudding

The texture of this rice is a bit heavier as compared to other varieties and so soak it for 6 hours before cooking.

Heads-up: On soaking the rice in water, it is natural for the water to turns purple/ blackish in shade. Don’t worry it does not have any added colour. You can even use this water for your hair masks and also blends perfectly with oils and other conditioners.
