The Fragrant Flat Rice of the golden Autumn

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/11/2

Thai people basically live in the humid and hot subtropical or tropical regions where they grow rice paddy as their staple stuff. Besides they like sticky rice in particular and plant a sort of sticky rice called Guba which is marked by its big and full grain. Just as the saying goes “If one family steams the Guba sticky rice, the whole village will smell the fragrant scent”. This top quality sticky rice is a very important material for preparing the Thai food for festive occasions.The delicious Flat Rice is made of this special sticky rice. When the rice is harvest, Thai people use iron ladle or bowl to remove the chaff. The rice is washed in fresh water before being stir fried in the iron pot until turning golden in color and fragrant in smell. The steamed rice is then put on a bamboo pan to get dried. Finally the flat rice is packed in fresh banana leaves, so the rice also gets the refreshing scent of the leaves while retaining soft and juicy. This typical Thai food is often offered as sacrifice to Buddha or guests as best food and gifts.

Tips:In the lunar September when the fragrant fresh rice is ripe and harvested, tourists can buy various tasty Thai snack food from the Thai women food vendors on the street.
