One of the best ways to pair Raniakanda is with fish.
We have paired it with some in-season ilish maach bhaja along with a red chili and eggplants fried in the same ilish oil. This beautiful table rice goes well with almost anything and can be consumed everyday.
Raniakanda is one of our folk rice varieties that along with Dudhersar is suitable as good table rice. The slender, medium grains cook to fluffy, light rice that is non-sticky. Harvested the traditional way, Raniakanda retains much of the micronutrients and is one of the salt-tolerant varieties of the region.
the uncooked grains are dirty-white in colour
store it in a dark place, so that it does not attract moisture, and away from direct sunlight
what you can cook with
Raniakanda can well substitute your regular table rice. Pair it with any curries or vegetables: we like it the best with fish, though.
