Traditional process of husking rice from South India.
The staple food of south Indian states is rice. The rice commonly found here does not undergo any mechanical processing. It is husked from fresh paddy to separate the rice from the hull. Most of the south Indian farmers do the husking manually and it is done with the help of mortar and pestle method. The paddy rice is filled in the mortar and pounded until the hulls are separated from the rice. The process is repeated until the desired quality is reached. Then the rice is poured into a separate container and winnowed to separate the hulls for the grains. This entire process is called rice husking.
