SPECIALTY RICE - SOFT RICE/READY TO EAT RICE

"Kumal chaul & Boka Chaul are parboiled rice from Assam made by normal
parboiling method (boiling paddy followed by one drying and then dehusking
them). Back in the 17th century, it was the fuel for the Ahom (Now Assam)
soliders fighting the Mughal army. Today, it’s fuel for the hundreds of
farmers who toil in the fields of Assam everyday, for whom it has become a
staple. These two endemic varieties of rice does not need to be cooked!.
Boka chaul can be just soaked in (cold) water for one hour, and it swells
up like a charm. Mix it with curd, jaggery and banana, and it’s ready to
eat. The higher grade boka saul swells up in much lesser time (almost 15-
20 minutes!!).
The basic difference Boka Chaul with Kumol Chaul, both of which falls under
""Soft-rice or Ready-to-eat rice"" is that the latter requires warm/hot
water to swell whereas boka chaul is receptive to cold/room temperature
water. Kumol chaul is prepared from both Chokuwa and Bora varieties of rice
(the Chokuwa varieties result in a better, less-sticky Komal chaul than
Bora varieties) but Boka chaul comes specifically from the Boka dhan (rice
variety). Boka saul (oryza sativa) is grown in parts of lower Assam —
Nalbari, Barpeta, Goalpara, Kamrup, Darrang, Dhubri, Chirang, Bongaiagoan,
Kokrajhar, Baksa etc. Nalbari has around 70,000 hectares of agricultural
land of which 3,500 hectares (about 5%) is dedicated to the cultivation of
boka chaul. Komal chaul is cultivated majorly in Upper Assam."

Health Benefits: According to a study by the Guwahati University's
Biotechnology Department, Boka chaul has 10.73% fiber and 6.8% protein. The
unique softness of Boka Chaul is a result of its low content of amylose, a
starch component that contributes to the hardness of food grains. Compared
to the usual 20-25% in most of the regular rice varieties, it contains just
4-5% amylose. This also makes Komal Chaul easily digestible, which is why
this fragrant and fluffy rice is light on the stomach. It also makes a
versatile ingredient, as it doesn’t have a distinctive flavour of its own
and it takes on the flavour of other, stronger-flavoured additions to the
dish.
Other Benefits: The rice can work well as a “disaster management” food as
well as supplement for soldiers in high-altitude frontier areas. During
floods, this is a great ‘emergency food’ for obvious reasons.
