Myanmar is proudly producing Paw San; which was awarded best rice in the world in 2011 and also known as “Pearl Rice” due to its white and delicate texture. It is a unique fragrant rice and although it belongs to Short-grain rice group, it is famous for its elongation characteristics and called as “Magic Rice” which could become up to three times bigger than original size after cooking.
