A meal without a rice bowl on the table seems so incomplete! Indeed, rice is one of the staple grains in India, and there are numerous types of rice available in our country. From the Basmati rice used for pulaos and Biryanis to the Surti Kolam used for khichdis, the parboiled rice available to make idlis and dosas, and the innumerable varieties of South Indian rice like Ponni and Sona Masuri. For most Indians, meals like lunch and dinner generally include at least a cup of rice, along with rotis and other dishes.

Rice can be served plain, with accompaniments like dal, subzis, sambhar and rasam, or it can be prepared into one-dish meals like pulaos, Biryani , Khichdi and baked rice dishes. Whether you want to have something light or heavy, you can find a rice dish to match your requirement.
