Maya Kaimal’s Organic Surekha Rice has a sweet-earthy taste and separate grains that never stick together. It’s very different from such well-known varieties as Basmati, jasmine, brown or white rice because-unlike other rice-it is ‘parboiled’ before being de-husked. The resulting grains look like White rice but are harder and contain additional nutrients which get forced from the husk into the grains during the steaming process. Our pouches are a convenient way to enjoy this special varieties are fully cooked and can be microwaved in 90 seconds. Surekha’s mild flavor makes it perfect for enjoying with any meal, Indian or otherwise. We recommend pairing it with our Everyday dals and simmer sauces. Maya Kamal's Surekha Rice pouches are certified organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, Certified Kosher, vegan, gluten free and vegetarian. As with all of Maya Kaimal’s offerings, our Surekha Rice are free of preservatives. *Consistency may vary. Important information: packaging may vary.
- A DELICIOUS, FULLY COOKED INDIAN RICE: Maya Kaimal's Turmeric + Cumin Organic Surekha Rice is refreshingly different. Grown in South India, this variety has firm grains that never stick together, and on their own they have a sweet-earthy taste. We add ground turmeric and cumin seeds for a subtly aromatic flavor and golden hue that makes this rice an ideal accompaniment to Indian food, or goes beautifully with any cuisine.
- WHAT IS SUREKHA RICE? Surekha (pronounced sir-RAY-ka) is nutritionally closer to brown rice than white rice because of the ancient processing technique of ‘parboiling’. After being harvested, the grains get steamed in their husks (not done to conventional rice’s) to lock in nutrients and fiber. The process also hardens the grains, so they stay firm and separate.
