Rajamudi, one of the rarest varieties of red rice available in the market, has a tradition that traces back to the era of the Wodeyars of Mysore. It is said that people who could not pay tax to the King of Mysore were asked to pay nutritious Rajamudi rice in lieu of that. Rajamudi rice is unpolished and comes in a mix of red and brown colour.
