As with any traditional technique, hand pounding is a labour of love. Hand-pounding rice is clearly one of the age-old techniques to remove the outer husks, while retaining the flavour, micronutrients and some of the bran. Our hand-pounded Kanakchur is a revelation; it sets the ball rolling for a delicious meal, right when you open the packet. The deep caramel aroma intensifies as the rice cooks, giving you a sweet-tasting, nutty bowl of steamed rice.
