So you think you know rice?
Unpolished or whole grain rice is essentially where only the indelible husk of the rice is removed, while the bran layer stays intact. Typically, unpolished rice has a higher fiber content compared to its polished version. As a general rule of thumb, unpolished rice will require a little bit more water to cook and will shy slightly from exhibiting the true characteristics of the rice.
A rice revitalization initiative
An unconventional origin story...
It is said that the farmer(s) had unintentionally mixed the seeds of Beras Ketumbar (white variety) and Beras Merah (red variety) while planting the paddy. When the rice was harvested and processed, the farmer(s) was/were surprised by this mix-colored rice. It turned out to be an unintended, but a delicious consequence!

Some local wisdom...
‘New rice’ is paddy that is harvested and freshly processed to become rice. Farmers say that all ‘new rice’ is generally softer, more fragrant and requires a little less water to cook compared to rice that is over a year old.
