Red rice is rich in proteins, lipids, dietary fibre, vitamins and minerals.
One of the most popular rice variants of Kerala is Uma.
Uma is of 135 days duration and grows well during both seasons- kharif(The cropping season starts with the onset of monsoon in India)and rabi (Cropping starts in October or November and harvesting in spring). If the rice is grown along with neighboring farms in these seasons, it doesn’t face pest problems.
Mayyil rice is produced by Mayyil Rice Producer Company Limited,a farmer-producer organisation in Mayyil, Kannur district. The company is branding their rice as Mayyil Rice. This rice is offered as semi polished which is most suitable form for regular eating. The par boiled rice is processed in-farm, boiled in old fashioned way in large vats and then dried without showing sunlight. This dried rice is taken to special mini mills in Mayyil for milling so that it retains 60% bran.
When it come to cooking and eating quality, it is soft, very tasty and cooks quite easily. As Uma rice is healthy and tasty, it is one of the most popular red rices in Kerala. It is very good as par boiled, raw rice and can be used for dosa batter too.
Usually parboiled rice is ready to use a few weeks after harvest, but the raw rice is ready for processing only after the paddy has been at least for six months old. Aged rice is expected to be better for well-being.
