Matta Rice (aka Rose Matta, Kerala Red Rice, Kerala Matta Rice) Help. How to cook it?

qianning | Aug 21, 2013 09:04 AM

So far my attempts to cook this rice have been unsuccessful. Does anyone have advice on the best way to cook Matta rice?

Specifically I would love to know, for stove top cooking--best rice to water ratios, approximate boiling time, ditto steaming time, whether it should be drained after boiling before steaming/resting and should it be soaked before cooking?

Has anyone ever cooked this in a Japanese style rice cooker? If so what method--,Brown or white rice setting, rice to water ratio, and pre-soak or not?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
