Karpurkanti is our absolute favourite when it comes to robust meat dishes. An inspired two-pepper buff fry here pairs stunningly with the aromatic Karpurkanti.


about the rice

Karpurkanti comes a close second in aroma after Kanakchur. The indigenous rice variety is known as a hardy aromatic crop, grown only by a few smallholder women farmers in the Sundarbans. The low-yielding variety is prized for its excellent aroma and great texture.

what you can cook with

Pair Karpurkanti in a bengali-style fried rice or khichuri. Even though it is aromatic, Karpurkanti suits savoury dishes more than sweet ones, and when paired with meat, it is a show-stopper.
