Poongar rice is a special gluten-free unpolished rice popular in Tamilnadu. This nutrient-loaded rice is given to pregnant women and lactating mothers as it gives them the required strength and immunity. Cultivated through sustainable agro methods by our farmers, these hand-pounded traditional rice varieties have more minerals than other rice varieties. Soak the rice and grind it into flour for making dosa, rice noodles (idiyappam), kozhukattai (dumplings) and other steamed items.
