Sand is added to the rice mixture in the hot pot to keep it from sticking to the pot. When the rice is popped, it is poured out into a ceramic container with small holes. The sand passes through the popped rice stays. Surprisingly, the popped rice doesn’t have a gritty, sandy taste to it. Hatiandha, Bangladesh.
