There is much more to the verdant state of Assam than its lush-green tea estates and abundant wildlife. It is also home to a cuisine famed for the delicacy of its flavours and aromas. Reputed Assamese Chef MRS. UTPALA MUKHERJEE introduces us to a cuisine that is a confluence of the cooking styles of the hills that favour fermentation and smoking techniques as well as cooking in banana leaves and bamboo hollows which add as much flavour as would spices. Assamese dishes are less spicy than any other Indian dishes, but carry richness of taste and health, using a wide variety of rice, fish, greens, and local and natural herbs. The use of raw mustard oil and fermented bamboo shoots gives the cuisine a distinctive taste. The Assamese contribution to the world of taste is the alkalinity of ‘khar’, just as Japanese cuisine introduced the world to ‘umami’.
