about the rice

Kullakar is a traditional red folk rice variety that is cultivated from April-August to December-March and is a regional favourite for Idlis and Dosas. The immense health benefits aside, this variety serves traditional purposes as well. Historically, the paddy stalks, after harvest season, are used for roof thatching, because of their sturdiness.
