Rankema Suwandal Rice | 1 kg
The name suwandel is derived from the Sinhalese word suwandha—meaning fragrance—and refers to the fragrant smell of this rice after cooking. These short, round grains of white rice also taste better than many of the other traditional varieties of rice—which is why it is popular at festivals and other religious and cultural ceremonies. Suwandel is said to contain high amounts of carbohydrates, vitamins, fat and micronutrients, and is beneficial in reducing high blood pressure levels in the body. Like dik wee, suwandel, too, has a low glycemic index, which make it a good source of food for diabetic patients.
