Bamboo rice, also known as Mulayari is a healthy and lesser-known variety of rice which is grown out of a dried bamboo shoot when they are at their last stage. When a bamboo shoot reaches its life expectancy, it starts flowering in mass along with producing seeds for new trees to grow.

The seeds from the dying bamboo shoot are actually the bamboo rice which is green in colour, tiny and shaped likes rice when harvested. The seeds are then dried, similar to other grain and used like rice. The reason why bamboo rice is very rarely found in the market is that the period of bamboo flowering and seeding is between 20-120 years. Bamboo rice is just a bit different from other rice grains. They taste similar to wheat, but somewhat sweet and have a light pungent smell. Bamboo rice is gluten-free and when cooked, are moist, sticky and chewy. It is the main source of food for tribal people throughout India with a high nutritive value compared to both rice and wheat.
