    Description

    Bengal rice has a rich tradition of folk cultivation and had more than five hundred plus varieties, most of them unfortunately have been lost over the passage of time. However a new resurgence is seen across Bengal to revive some of the lost varieties and communities of farmers under advice from Agricultural Scientists have come together with a positive notion to bring back our past glory.

    This varient of rice offered to you is known as 'Mulliphulo', which is long grain and aromatic in nature and has been cultivated without any use of pesticides and fertilizers. These varieties are unpolished and rich in mineral content unlike the polished and nutrient less varieties available in the market. 

    These rice grains are long and are para-boiled (Atap) in nature and are cultivated in Southern Bengal.
