Rice harvesting

  • Food

Final step to get the white rice was to send the harvested 50kg rice to a machine which separates the grains of rice halm from the rice halm husks. Such a machine is called a rice huller and is used to automate the process of removing the chaff (the outer husks) of grains of rice. Throughout history, there have been numerous techniques to hull rice. Traditionally, it would be pounded using some form of mortar and pestle. So after waiting for 8 weeks, there was not enough rice to be processed, we got our 50kg grain rice bag which was then only 25kg heavy without all the husks / chaff. Looks pretty impressive now that simple rice dosent it?
