Himalayan Red Rice

How to cook Himalayan Red Rice?

Farm Stories' Natural Himalayan Red Rice which is grown in foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in India is a short-grain aromatic rice owing its name to rosy russet hue of the bran that is left on the grain ( which also gives it its significant nutritional benefit - fibre) 

High in fibre, it is equally healthy and delicious to eat and finds it way into pulaos, salads and is a great healthy alternative to white rice in Indian and continental cooking! 

How to cook Red Rice?
Due to its high fibre content it takes a little longer than regular rice to cook so we recommend prep by washing and soaking the rice for 1 hour minimum. 

What you need: 

1 cup - Farm Stories' Natural Red Rice 
2 1/4 cups - Water|
Salt (to taste) 


Add 1 cup of rice to 2 1/4 cups of water.
Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to simmer.
Cover and cook for 35 to 40 minutes.
Fluff with a fork before serving.

Fluffy, steaming, nutty aroma and delicious red rice is ready to eat!
