Short Grain Rice (Matta)

Short grain non-basmati rice Matta, also known as Rosematta rice or Palakkadan Matta rice, is a unique variety of rice primarily grown in the Kerala region of India. It is characterized by its distinct reddish-brown color and short, plump grains. Matta rice is traditionally parboiled, which means the grains are partially boiled in the husk before being milled. This process gives the rice its signature color and imparts a nutty flavor to the grains. It is often considered a healthier option compared to polished white rice as it retains more of its natural nutrients. Matta rice is commonly used in South Indian cuisine, especially in dishes like traditional Kerala-style biryani, pulao, and various rice-based preparations. It has a unique taste and chewy texture, making it a popular choice for those seeking a different rice experience.
