Seeraga Samba rice is a gluten-free white rice, which is a seasonal product. It is a very high quality rice that can easily compete with the Basmati rice.
The rice is normally available until August. After this we have to wait until about January before the rice will be available again.
The Seeraga Samba rice is an ancient mystical rice variety with a delicious taste and aroma. It is therefore one of the most expensive rice varieties from South India because the cultivation requires a lot of coddling in the field and the yield is sparse.
This small rice variety gets its name from its resemblance to cumin, which is known in Tamilnadu as Seeragam.
When properly cooked, these grains are fluffy and loose. It is an ideal rice for preparing Biryani. It absorbs the flavor of the masala instead of giving the dish a strong flavor like basmati rice does. Seeraga Samba is also known as Kaima rice and Jeerasal.

For best results it is advisable to soak the rice in water first, 5 minutes to 10 minutes before use, but this is not necessary. Rinse the rice before cooking.
Bring the rice to the boil in a pan with double the amount of water. Then let it simmer with the lid on the pan for about 20 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat once it has absorbed most of the water and let it rest for about 5 minutes with the lid on the pan.
