Kulipaniyaram Using Red Matta Rice

Red Matta Rice popular known as Kerala rice or also as Rosematta Rice is highly nutritious and has unique color and taste. All keralites must be aware of this rice. Before buying, had google'd about the values and was amazed to know that it had less calories than the regular kind..
Planning for diet ? Try to include this rice in your meal plan...While browsing, happened to read another interesting fact that this rice is considered as Royal rice during chera 'n chola period. 
Tried Idly and dosa too with the same and taste was really good. Planning to try few more recipes with this to make my family more healthier :) Served this kulipaniyaram with Coconut chutney.
