We paired this delicious siddha rice variety with our version of peyaj-posto, a simple dish of onions and poppy seeds that complements the earthy flavour notes of the rice. JP as a table rice variety can be used regularly and consumed daily.


about the rice

The rice is named after Jayprakash Singh, a farmer from Benares, who selected and introduced this indigenous rice variety. The medium-grained rice is deeply flavourful and grows well. It is one of the high-yielding varieties that is fairly resistant to diseases, and does not require synthetic pesticides or insecticides.
