Naturally grown Indrayani rice is a great source of vitamins and minerals
Indrayani rice once cooked is a treat to enjoy, with its sticky texture and fragrance. This hybrid variety was created back in the day when small farmers struggled with the low yield of the fragrant Ambemohar rice; thus crossing the Ambemohar with a high yielding variety and naming the resulting variety after the river Indrayani that ran through the Sahyadri region.
Indrayani is widely used in Maharashtra and farmer's homes as staple daily rice. Due to its sticky texture, it soaks up curries really well and is a great option for Khichdi, Masala Bhaat and Pulao. Pre-soak the rice 20-30 mins before cooking.
