Goa rice is known as “Ukdem Tandul”. Ukdem means boiled & tandul means rice.
Its unique firm texture and slightly nutty grains make it ideal with coconut milk based curries.
It is Parboiled, meaning boiled in husk. Parboiling makes rice easier to process by hand, improves its nutritional profile, and changes its texture. However, because of the special processing, parboiled rice is a better source of fiber, calcium, potassium and vitamin B-6 than regular white rice.
This rice grain is cooked and served just as you would white or brown rice.
