Description

Chemical and Pesticide-Free

Bengal rice has a long tradition of folk cultivation that includes more than five hundred plus varieties, most of which have been unfortunately lost with the passage of time. However, in an initiative to revive some of the lost varieties, a new resurgence is gathering momentum across Bengal now. Farmers under the advice from Agricultural Scientists and active support by the Govt, have come together with a positive notion to resuscitate the past glory.

For a true-blue Bengali, rice is not just a food grain, it is an emotion, an integral part of the Bengali cuisine which is enjoyed in numerous ways. Be it steamed rice, Sweet polau, or porridge (chaler payesh), authentic Bengali cuisine is simply incomplete without a plateful of it.

This variety of Radha-Tilak is unpolished in nature, along with being chemical and pesticide-free. It is an 'Atap' rice variety and is short-grained, aromatic, and rich in mineral content.

‘Radha-Tilak’ has a quaint reference to the folklore encircling Lord Krishna and Radha, and is believed to be the grain of choice for the latter. This variety is parboiled in nature and is directly procured from the farmers of South Bengal who cultivate this rice using the traditional method of farming without the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers.
