Mapillai Samba or “Bride Groom Rice” is a native variety of rice, which is red in colour and is grown predominantly in Tamil Nadu. 


In the olden days, prospective bridegrooms have to prove their mettle by lifting up a heavy stone called the Ilavattakal. This rice was thought to give the ungodly strength, stamina and focus needed for this task, hence the name Mapillai Samba or Bridegroom Rice.
