In remote villages without a mechanical or electrical power, peoples still use manual processing of their staple food: rice. This post harvest processing involves temporary storage near the paddy farm; threshing or beating to loosen the rice grains; winnowing to remove dust, stalks and loose husks; storing in barn, and pounding to separate the whole rice from husks.
