The evolution across the globe has brought in diverse choices for current generation from birthing to schooling compared to the limited opportunities in the past. The modern approaches have established their own unique theories to the child development.

The miracle rice “Karuppu Kavuni Arisi”, Black Kavuni Rice.


In olden days, the Chettinad community in south India were known for their wide spread of trading network ranging from Arabia to South East Asia. During their business travel to sell our Indian spices, precious stones, and so on, there was huge cultural exchange of value and knowledge. Best example is Burmese teak to adorn their palaces, and less known rice to south India, which has become a part of their cuisine as well, Karuppu Kavuni Arisi, black kavuni rice.

All these ancient rices are packed with health benefits than these Modern day supplements. There is rice for every human need. Sample this, there is a rice called a maapillai samba, given to married people or people trying to conceive, fundamentally it increased the ojas in the body. There is another rice variety called as Neela samba, which would increase lactation for feeding mothers. The list goes on and on.

Black Kavuni Rice was once served only for royal family in china. General public was denied access to this rice, probably merchants were always friends with royal families that’s how they got their hand with this rice varities. Even today there is no chettinad wedding without black kavuni rice desserts.

Black rice, white dishIn ancient days, when a girl attends puberty, they used to make black rice pudding (called as puttu also known as Rangoon puttu). This is because this will help her stabilizes her body and increase the iron in blood and stops accumulating fat in back and hip region, a place women add more fat. Over a period of time, we forgot the black rice and we only followed the ritual and pudding part. Even today, in some part of villages, when a girl is getting ready to be married, they used to give black rice based food to rebuild her into proper shape.

American Chemical Society (ACS) says, one spoonful of black rice contains more anthocyanin antioxidants than a spoonful of blueberries.
Today lot of scientific data points are surfacing about this miracle rice, American Chemical Society (ACS) says, one spoonful of black rice contains more anthocyanin antioxidants than a spoonful of blueberries. Until then, blueberries was considered the richest source of anthocyanin antioxidants. Black kavuni has 18 amino acids, zinc that counts for immunity, iron that counts for carrying oxygen and the list goes like, copper, carotene, anthocyanin and several important vitamins. Our ancient healing text says, black rice helps to prevent cancer, diabetes and heart disease. This is very good for your kidney, stomach and liver. Another beauty of this is. Due to high fibre content, consuming just 1/3rd the quantity is more than enough for the day and you will not feel hunger. It is amazing to see how our ancestor’s contribution for balanced holistic life. That is why they say, food is our medicine and medicine is our food!
