This bowl of khoi is light and mellow on the palate and heavy on the aroma and flavour. Made from the famed Kanakchur this one is a superstar in its own right.


Khoi or Popped Rice is traditionally made from unhusked rice grains, by hot sand frying. Making Kanakachur khoi requires double the skilled craftsmanship simply because the rice variety itself is extremely tender. For the same reason individual husks, after being popped, need to be removed manually. The aroma and flavour combined with this painstaking task make it the one of the premium products of Bengal.
