Wild Rice

Wild rice (Ojibwe: Manoomin; also called Canada rice, Indian rice or 'nIvAra' in Sanskrit, and water oats) are four species of grasses forming the genus Zizania, and the grain that can be harvested from them. The grain was historically gathered and eaten in North America, India and China. While now a delicacy in North America, the grain is eaten less in China, where the plant's stem is used as a vegetable.
