What is hand-pound rice?
Hand-pounded rice, also known as traditional rice, is a type of rice that is produced using traditional methods. This means that the rice is not milled or polished like modern rice. Instead, it is hand-pounded using a mortar and pestle to remove the husk and bran. This process preserves the nutrients and flavor of the rice, making it more nutritious and flavorful than modern rice.
Hand-pounded rice has a rougher texture than polished rice and also has a nutty taste. It is considered to be healthier because it is less processed and contains more vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants than polished rice. It is also considered to be more sustainable as it does not require large-scale machinery or energy consumption in the production process.
Hand-pounded rice is commonly found in rural areas of India and other Southeast Asian countries, where it is considered a staple food. It is used to make a variety of dishes such as dosa, idli, and upma. It is also used to make traditional porridge and puddings.
How to cook hand-pound rice?
Cooking hand-pounded rice is similar to cooking regular rice, but it requires a little more time and attention. The first step is to soak the rice in water for at least 4 hours or overnight. This helps to soften the rice and make it easier to cook.
To cook, add the soaked rice to a pot with enough water to cover the rice by about 2 inches. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover the pot and let the rice simmer for about 30-40 minutes or until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed.
It is important to check the rice occasionally and stir it to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pot. If the water has been absorbed and the rice is still not cooked, add a little more water and continue cooking. Once the rice is cooked, turn off the heat and let it sit for a few minutes before fluffing it with a fork and serving.
Cooking time may vary based on the type of rice and how long it has been soaked, so it’s best to check the rice frequently to ensure that it is cooked to your liking.
