Organic Thooyamalli Rice / Premium Parboiled Jasmine Rice

Organic Jasmine Rice also known as Thooyamalli Rice . Thuyamalli or Thooyamallai, is a traditional variety of rice that is native to Tamil Nadu, a state in southern India. It is known for its unique aroma, slender grains, and its cultural significance in South Indian cuisine.

  1. Aroma and Texture: Thooyamalli rice is prized for its pleasant aroma, which is often described as nutty or earthy. The grains are slender and elongated, similar to other long-grain rice varieties.

  2. Culinary Uses: This rice variety is commonly used in traditional South Indian dishes such as idlis (steamed rice cakes), dosas (thin pancakes), and steamed rice. It is also used to prepare biryanis and other rice-based dishes.

  3. Cultural Significance: Thooyamalli rice holds cultural importance in Tamil Nadu, where it is considered a heritage rice variety. It is valued not only for its taste and aroma but also for its role in preserving traditional culinary practices.

  4. Nutritional Value: Like other rice varieties, Thooyamalli rice is a source of carbohydrates and provides energy. It also contains some essential nutrients depending on the processing method and consumption.

  5. Availability and Conservation: Due to changes in agricultural practices and preferences for more commercially viable rice varieties, Thooyamalli rice faces challenges in conservation. Efforts are being made to promote and preserve indigenous rice varieties like Thooyamalli for their cultural and agricultural heritage.
