How to cook Kerala Matta Rice, Pressure cooker method

Kerala matta rice, how to cook Palakadan matta rice, pressure cooker method, with video and step by step pictures. Though i know Kerala matta rice has loads of health benefits, somehow i never attempted to cook it as i am not very comfortable in changing my main course food. I am a hard core white rice eater but can be eat millets to some extent now. Recently one of my friend was telling about this Kerala rice and she told that her kids are quite comfortable eating the same. This was an eye opener for me, when small kids can eat this comfortably, i wanted to give it a try. She told me the procedure to cook the Kerala rice too.
I picked up a pack of Kerala Matta rice from Sri Murugan stores, Simei and tried the same. Surprisingly we all loved it and even the kids too didn't fuss much. Sri Murugan has 1 kg of palakadan Matta rice and also it is available in 5 kgs packet too.
For my readers in Singapore, Sri Murugan Stores offers a wide range of grocery and fresh vegetables. They have few outlets in Singapore and they do home delivery too. Sri Murugan has their android and iOs app too, where you can order through app.

Method  :

  • Wash the rice and soak it in 5 cups of water for an hour. 
  • Pressure the rice for 7-8 whistles in the cooker.
  • Once the pressure is released, take out the rice and drain the excess rice by running this through a colander. 
  • You can add a bit of salt and give this water to kids.
  • This is starch water and generally i don't prefer to consume it. 
  • Palakadan Matta rice is ready to serve.
  • I prefer this rice with sambar, vatha kuzhambu and curd rice. Some how for rasam rice i feel it didn't gel with the rice. 

Notes:
  1. Soaking is important for this rice, else it will not get cooked properly. 
  2. This is the easiest way of cooking the matta rice, but if you want to cook on the stove top, you can do so.
  3. Follow the same steps and cook kerala matta rice on a heavy bottomed pan.
