From Khichdi to Pulao to desserts, Rakthashali can be used to make every day delicacies and is a healthy, holistic substitute to other rice varieties. This medicinal rice goes well with all side dishes and is perfectif you’re looking for a light, nutritious meal.
Since Rakthashali rice is full bran and raw, it takes longer to cook. One wash is enough as the rice is naturally farmed. Too much washing robs the rice of its bran. Soak the rice for a couple of hours and cook in the same water (1:3) in a pressure cooker or the traditional way in an open vessel with lid.
