Varieties of Rice
Most rice varieties exported from India can be broadly categorized into Sona Masoori, Basmati and Non Basmati groups. Furthermore, once paddy is harvested, there are three main paths:
1. Raw: paddy is milled directly
2. Parboiled rice: paddy is boiled and then milled
3. Steamed rice: paddy is steamed and then milled
While raw and parboiled rice were dominant earlier, steamed rice has also become popular over the last few years, especially for the Sona Masoori segment.
