Basmati Rice | গরম ভাত
Rice is one the most consumed foods on Earth, a staple in many countries around the world including India where 50% of its population depends on the grain for sustenance. While many people are familiar with India’s basmati rice, there are actually around 6,000 different varieties of rice cultivated in the country. Basmati is known as “the Prince of rice” and means “the fragrant one” due to its fragrant aroma. Its exceptional character lies in its unique aroma that has been likened to ‘sun-baked wood and flowers.’ The long slender grains have a delicious taste and delicate texture. Like fine wine, Basmati flavour matures with age.
From June to November the farmers cultivate their Basmati crop. The work starts with the seed preparation and sowing. After a few weeks the Basmati saplings are transplanted by hand from the nursery slopes to the main paddy field. Basmati flowers one month before it is harvested, reminding us why it is famed for its fragrance. To this day Basmati is harvested by hand and threshed to ensure that none of the precious grains are lost. After all Basmati commands a premium on the international market of two or three times the price of ordinary long grain rice.
The cuisine of Bengal consists of dishes from both East and West Bengal i.e. undivided Bengal era as well as the dishes which originated in the city of Kolkata during the British rule. There is an emphasis on vegetarian cuisine, specially during festivals and is most commonly prepared without onion and garlic. A Mughlai influence on the cuisine is due to the their rule over certain parts of Bengal and the last Mughal emperor Wajid Ali Shah has said to have contributed a lot to the Bengali cuisine. There is an array of lesser known dishes cooked every day at home. Panch Mishali Torkari (five vegetable stir-fry), Chapor Ghonto (vegetable mishmash), Neem Begun (neem leaves stir fried with potato and brinjal), to name a few.
There is a bit of history involved with the origin of this unique blend of cuisines; The Indian form of “Hakka Cuisine” originates from the fact that the a lot of Chinese restaurants in India are owned by the people of the Hakka origin. Both the Indian and the Chinese cultures combined, accepted and fused happily in terms of food giving birth to an entirely new kind called the Indo-Chinese or the Indian Chinese; with the taste and flavors very different from both Indian and Chinese cuisine, it is a genre by itself. It is bold, varied, spicy – overall an experience by itself. The Indian Chinese flavors are also enjoyed by Indian and Chinese communities in Malaysia, and Singapore.
