Pasayam is a common dessert cooked with rice; this is also consumed as a prasad. Whole grain rice has to be cooked for a little longer than the regular rice.

Cultivation highlights

Transplanting is one of the most common methods of establishing rice plants. It uses less seed and is a more effective weed control strategy, but it involves more work. Transplanting seedlings can be done by machine or by hand. At OrganicSiri, we grow all our crops in our own farms organically without use of fertilizers or chemicals.


Whole grain rice has low shelf life; due to high oil and protein content they get spoilt faster and attract insect growth. It’s crucial to keep it away from moisture and to avoid using damp hands or ladle when handling it. It is best stored in sealed and vacuum containers. When storing rice, make sure the container is dry and clean.


We grow rice in multiple crops over the seasons, store it to season and mill it periodically for year long availability.
