Description

Mappillai Samba is a native variety of rice grown in Tamil Nadu that’s well suited to organic farming because it is hardy and demands little or no fertilizers or pesticides. The origins of its name can be found in Tamil folklore which has it that traditionally, on his wedding day, a bridegroom (mappillai) was required to lift a heavy rock as a show of his strength and virility. To help boost his energy before the task, this rice was cooked and fed to the new son-in-law.

Along with other native varieties of rice, mappillai samba has all but disappeared from our farms and markets, making way instead of highly processed, nutritionally inferior white rice. Mappillai Samba can be cooked as plain rice, ground into flour, or made into idli, dosa, upma, and Pongal. It is high in fiber and associated with a host of health.

Benefits:

  • Aids digestion
  • Heals stomach and mouth ulcers
  • Improves immunity and stamina
  • Strengthens muscles and nerves
  • Supplies instant energy to the body
  • Increases hemoglobin content
  • Good for diabetics since it is has a low Glycemic Index.

  1. Srinivas

    Tired this rice with lot of hesitation however i liked it, it was fresh with packing & pricing is little higher but good for health so try it you may like it. cooking time is more than brown rice.

  2. Kannan

    Good rice. Requires soaking in water overnight. The stomach feels full even after consumption of small quantity, which is ideal for senior citizens too.
