 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 Radha-Tilak, it is an 'Atap' rice and has been cultivated without the 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.

‘Radha-Tilak’ has a quaint reference to the folklore encircling Lord Krishna and Radha, and is believed to be the grain choice of the latter. This short grain strong aroma variety is para-boiled in nature and is procured from the farmers of South Bengal.
