Description

Within its rich, milky flavor, the rice is also fortified with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and a much lower Glycaemic Index (GI) compared to other varieties of white rice. Just as this rare rice was used by aristocratic women of yore to foster glowing skin and luscious hair. Suwandel is said to contain high amounts of carbohydrates, vitamins, fat, and micronutrients, and is beneficial in reducing high blood pressure levels in the body. Like dik wee, suwandel, too, has a low glycemic index, which makes it a good source of food for diabetic patients.

Recipes and Preparing Instructions

Cooking Instructions
*1 cup of rice in a bowl and wash the rice lightly once.  Place in the cooking pot, add 3-3 1/2 cups cold water.
*Add a little salt and/or a pinch of ghee, butter or coconut, or olive oil. For added flavor add peppercorns, cloves, cardamom, turmeric, or cinnamon as necessary.
*Place the pan on the gas or electric stove, keep the lid open, adjust the heat to medium or slightly higher so that the rice can boil fast until the water level and the rice level are the same.
*From that stage onward, placed the lid on the pan, the fire reduced to very low heat so the remaining water is slowly absorbed into the rice, making the rice fluffy and grains separate.
*If the rice becomes mushy or lumpy add a little oil to the rice and place the rice in an uncovered pan at low heat for a few minutes.

Rice cooker instructions.
*Put 1 cup of rice in a bowl and wash lightly once but do not over-wash as it will remove the beneficial vitamins and minerals.
*Place in the rice cooker.
*Add Rice 3-3 1/2 cups cold water.
*Add a little salt and/or a pinch of ghee, butter or coconut, or olive oil. For added flavor add peppercorns, cloves, cardamom, turmeric, or cinnamon as necessary.
*Plugin the rice cooker, switch on, and allow the rice to cook automatically.
*This will take approximately 30 minutes or so. The automatic rice cooker will shut off itself when the rice is cooked. You need not switch it off as it will keep the rice warm until you use it.
