About this item:

Chakra Ponni-boiled Rice is a distinctive type of rice that is cultivated in the southern region of India. Named after the Kaveri River, the word "Ponni" means gold in the Tamil language, signifying the richness and excellence of this variety. Unlike regular white rice, Ponni Rice undergoes a special parboiling process, where it is partially boiled in the husk before milling. This technique makes it remarkably similar to brown rice in terms of nutritional value, offering essential vitamins and minerals that are beneficial for overall health.

One of the notable characteristics of Ponni Rice is its firm and less sticky texture, setting it apart from other South Indian rice varieties. Due to its unique qualities, Ponni Rice has become a staple ingredient in the daily diet of South Indian households. It is commonly used to prepare a range of traditional dishes, with Ven Pongal being one of the most popular. Ven Pongal is a savory rice and lentil dish served with coconut chutney and sambhar, a spicy lentil soup. To ensure the best results, Ponni Rice is typically soaked for approximately 30-45 minutes before cooking, allowing it to absorb water and enhance its flavor. With its exceptional taste and versatility, Ponni Rice remains a cherished ingredient in South Indian cuisine.
