India has different varieties of rice. We see some of them right in our kitchens. And amongst them all, there’s one rice; POKKALI RICE.
Pokkali (pronounced as Pokkaalli) is an interesting rice form which has a distinctively unique taste. Grown in organic ways and in the most unfavourable situations, this rice is a classic example of “Be a Diamond – Flourish under pressure”!
Pokkali is produced in water-logged coastal areas like Ernakulum, Alappuzha and Trissur districts of Kerala, a state in Southern India.
The one very striking feature of Pokkali Rice is that it’s very resistant to saline water. This rice grows in the months of June to early November, when the water salinity level is lower. Thereafter, prawn farming takes over.
The Story of Rice tour will witness various attractions like farm visit, village sight-seeing along with authentic local cuisine in a traditional style of eating, rides on the country boat to the backwaters, and much more.
Since Pokkali Rice is organically grown, it has more nutritional value than most of the rice forms. The protein content and medicinal properties of Pokkali Rice makes it more preferable for health-conscious people.
The Story of Rice tour will leave you with the taste of India by opening its doors to the glimpse of the diverse cultures of India.
