The unique pink color, distinct earthy flavor and fine texture of Kuruva gives any rice-based dish a unique charm of its own. This tasty rice opens up like a tiny flower when cooked perfectly and is perfect for traditional as well as contemporary dishes like rice-based salads, soups etc.
One wash is enough as the rice is naturally farmed. Too much washing robs the rice of its bran. Soak the rice for 30mins to 1 hour and cook in the same water(1:2.5) in a pressure cooker or the traditional way in an open vessel with lid.The rice is fully cooked when it opens up like a pink-hued flower!
