We have used Badshah Bhog in our interpretation of dhakai morog polao with a birishta emulsion and pickled white radish. The dish was a joy to consume with the Badshah Bhog lending its subtle aroma to the whole plate.
about the rice
Probably one of the more popular aromatic rice varieties from Bengal, Badshah Bhog as the name suggests is “fit for the kings”. The rice falls under the Aman category of crops, meaning it is harvested in December. The short, slim white rice is perfect for the special winter meals.
|The grains are white|
store it in an air-tight jar to retain the aroma in cool, dry, dark place
what you can cook with
Badshah Bhog is traditionally used in special occasions and best suited for pulao and other savoury dishes. You can pair it with hearty, steamy dishes and broths for that perfect cold weather lunch.
