about the rice

Hand-pounded Dudhersar or dhneki cchata dudhersar is simply our dudhersar rice variety processed the traditional way. Dhneki chata though translated as hand-pounded involves more than just hands. The whole process takes at least two people, one of them working the lever with foot while another deftly moves around the rice grains in a shallow hole. The whole process is one of skill, agility, experience and love.
