Ponni Boiled rice comes from the state of Tamil Nadu in South India. Developed there, it has now become a favourite in other states of India as well. Ponni, meaning ‘Gold’, is an apt name for the yellow-golden grains. The boiled rice is prepared by steaming the grain before it is husked. As a result, the grain absorbs many of the nutrients from the husk.
