Red Rice


The Marathi word Ambemohar, which means “Mango Blossom,” has a powerful perfume evocative of mango blossoms. The Maval area of Pune district in Maharashtra has long been used for rice cultivation. Based on historical data, it appears that the rich and sweet aroma of this rice made it a favourite in the courts of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Bajirao Peshwa . It is reported that in 1809, “Bajirao Peshwa” catered a feast for 175635 Brahmins using Ambemohar rice, a superb kind that he had bought from the Maval-Mulshi area of Pune District.

This type of rice is high in potassium and vitamin B complex. The cooked grains tend to clump together and break readily. For this reason, elderly and younger individuals prefer it.
