Padi at Malaysia





padiPaddy/Padi
Padi grains when ripe for harvesting is golden brownish in color. The padi farmers, would cut the stalks and bunched them up into bundles.

To remove the grains from its stalk, the padi farmers would "swipe" a bundle against a slated platform with a grain receiver below.

The grains collected are sent to a winnowing machine to remove the husk/chaff. The brownish rice is further processed to get the white, polished rice grain.

A Malay village is never completed without the scenery of a padi field. The field is also known as "bendang" or "sawah".
