Himalayan Red Rice has been grown in Asia for many centuries. Sourced directly from the farmers in the foothills of Assam, this rice is super healthy for your daily cooking needs. The color of Himalayan rice is a deep rosy or russet hue which is a treat to the eyes. It is distinct from other types of rice in terms of flavour and nutritional value. The flavour can be described as nutty or earthy. It pairs beautifully with green vegetables. Soak rice in water for at least 30 mins before cooking for an even better taste.
