This is a classic payesh that needs little description. The slight sweetness balances the subtle nuttiness of kala bhaat.


about the rice

One of our finest aromatic, non-white varieties, kala bhaat has been an important part of folk rice revival. The highly glutinous rice has a longer growth-harvest cycle, but contributes significantly to maintain bio-diversity.

Kala bhaat is speckled black in appearance, slender and firm. Once cooked, it produces rich purple glutinous rice.
