Like Varagu rice, Kuthiravali rice, also known as Barnyard millet, has deep roots in the agricultural and culinary traditions of South India. While the exact historical context of its name might not be widely documented, its significance in traditional farming and regional cuisines is undeniable.

In the case of Kuthiravali rice, its name likely emerged from its visual resemblance to barnyard grass, even though they are distinct species.
