Khejur Chhari goes well as an easily digestible flavourful table rice. We have done a phyana bhaat with Khejur Chhari and paired it with boiled eggs, mashed potatoes with green chilli and our very own masala bori; drizzled with our Medinipur Ghee.
about the rice
Khejur Chhari is a short rice variety that is well known for its subtle sweetness and bright, pearly white colour. The panicle of the rice resembles the leaves of date palm, which is why the name Khejur Chhari, “khejur” meaning date palm and “chhari” the arrangement of the leaves. It is one of the most important salt-tolerant varieties of the Sundarbans region, making it quite a crucial part of the terroir. The complex sweet taste itself is one of the reasons why you should add it to your rice pantry.
