Cooking Process:

Cooking Mapillai Samba rice is quite similar to cooking other varieties of rice. Here's a basic cooking process:


  • Mapillai Samba rice
  • Water
  • Salt (optional)


  • Rinse the Rice: Measure the desired amount of Mapillai Samba rice and rinse it under cold running water in a fine-mesh strainer or a bowl until the water runs clear. This helps remove excess starch and ensures that the grains cook up fluffy and separate.

  • Soak (Optional): You can soak the rice for about 30 minutes to an hour before cooking. Soaking can help reduce the cooking time and make the rice fluffier, but it's not necessary.

  • Cooking on the Stovetop:

    • In a large saucepan or pot, bring water to a boil. Use the ratio of 2 to 2.5 cups of water for every cup of rice, depending on your desired rice texture (2 cups for firmer, 2.5 cups for softer).
    • Add the rinsed and drained Mapillai Samba rice to the boiling water.
    • Stir briefly, reduce the heat to low, and cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid.
    • Let the rice simmer for 15-20 minutes or until it's tender and all the water is absorbed.
    • Remove the pot from heat and let it sit, covered, for an additional 5-10 minutes to allow the steam to finish cooking the rice.
  • Fluff and Serve: After resting, use a fork to fluff the rice gently, which will separate the grains. You can add salt to taste if desired.

Mapillai Samba rice has a unique nutty flavor and a slightly chewy texture, making it a delightful addition to a variety of dishes. It's often used in traditional South Indian recipes like biryani, pongal, and idlis.
