Provenance

The original Indrayani rice, a medium grain native rice, owes its existence to another unique variety, Ambemohar. It’s low yield and susceptibility to disease saw farmers cross the Ambemohar with a high-yielding variety to develop the Indrayani, named after the river that flows through the Sahyadri Mountains. It’s now a staple in most traditional Marathi homes, and a favourite with grandmothers who feed fussy kids little pellets of rice mixed with desi ghee and Metkoot (lentil spice mix).

1. Wash rice and leave it to soak in water for 30 minutes. Soak cauliflower florets in salt water for 10 minutes to remove any dirt or insects, then drain.

2. In a pan, heat oil, add mustard seeds. When they splutter, add cumin seeds. When they crackle, add turmeric powder, asafoetida, black pepper, cloves, cinnamon, green cardamom, bay leaf, curry leaves and cashew nuts. Stir well and let this roast well in the oil. After 2 minutes, add the florets and sauté on high heat for two minutes but do it gently so as not to break them.

3. Add drained rice and sauté the mixture well so that it’s all coated with the masala.  

4. Simultaneously, boil 2.5 cups of water. Add to the pan. Stir and add salt, chilli powder, lime juice and Goda masala. Give it a good stir. 

5. Cover the pan and cook the mixture on low heat until the rice is done. Check along the way to see if more water is required to cook the rice.

6.Add fresh scraped coconut and coriander to the Masaale Bhaat, and drizzle some ghee on top. Take off heat.  

7.Serve hot with curd, Gahu Kurdai and a pickle of your choice.

      FAQs

      What's special about Indrayani Rice?

      Indrayani Rice is a medium grain native variety of rice that is a staple in traditional Marathi homes. It is immensely aromatic and is blessed with a unique sticky texture.

      Does the Indrayani Rice tend to clump?

      Given Indrayani Rice is a sticky rice, when cooked, the grains do have a tendency to clump together and will give you a slightly mushy texture that is perfect for khichdi, pulao and masale bhaat or with Thai curries. If you prefer non-mushy rice, then either put less water while cooking or use Aazol's short-grain Kolam Rice.

      How polished is your Indrayani Rice?

      Aazol's Indrayani Rice is single-polished, which makes it a semi-polished variety.

      Wouldn't unpolished Indrayani Rice be healthier?

      While unpolished Indrayani Rice is supposed to theoretically be healthier, it is also a lot more inconvenient and unsustainable to make, requiring soaking for several hours before the rice is actually cooked. Aazol's semi-polished Indrayani Rice is the best of both worlds, a perfect blend of health, taste and convenience, and therefore uniquely sustainable!

      Why is Aazol's Indrayani Rice more expensive than other varieties of Indrayani Rice out there?

      Aazol sources its Indrayani Rice from a natural farmer collective in Dhule, one that prides itself on growing organic rice made using traditional methods cultivated by tribals. In a market where there are plenty of cheap alternatives and knock-off varieties of Indrayani Rice, Aazol's Indrayani Rice is the most authentic you can get. In addition, the fair prices we pay to our suppliers, the strict quality control measures we adopt and the high-quality packaging that we use necessitate a certain premium. Quality after all can never cut corners!

      Is the Indrayani Rice vegan?

      Yes, Aazol's Indrayani Rice is completely vegan!

      Is the Indrayani Rice gluten-free?

      Aazol's Indrayani Rice is indeed 100% gluten-free.

      Does the Indrayani Rice contain any added preservatives?

      Rest assured, Aazol's Indrayani Rice contains absolutely no added preservatives.

      What is the shelf life of Aazol's Indrayani Rice?

      Aazol's Indrayani Rice can easily last 6 months, though given how tasty it is, we can guarantee that it will not stay unconsumed in your home for remotely that long!
