Reviving an Age Old Craft ~ the ‘Bell Metal’ Craft of Sarthebari, the State of Assam, Incredible India!

Brass and Bell Metal products of Sarthebari in Assam are famous for their beauty and strength of form and utility. The principal items of brass are the Kalah (water pot), Sarai (a platter or tray mounted on a base), Kahi (dish), Bati (bowl), Lota (water pot with a long neck) and Tal (cymbals).

The utensils manufactured using Bell Metal have certain medicinal properties and it is believed that consuming food in these utensils keep intestinal problems at bay. Also drinking water consumed in Bell Metal glasses aids in cleaning your body due to certain mineral present in these glasses. These were prime reasons for these utensils being used to serve food to the Royal family of Ahom kings of the Great Ahom dynasty of Assam.

Sarthebari iand Hajo are home to the bell metal industry, the second largest handicraft of Assam after Bamboo Handicrafts. Bell metal is an alloy of copper and tin and utensils made from it are used for domestic and religious purposes. Bell metal as a craft has survived for ages, yet there seems to be very little transition in the method of preparing bell metal items so far as Sarthebari is concerned. The craftsmen who are also referred to as the ‘Kahar’ or ‘Orja’ still resort to the age old tools required for burning and shaping the metal. About 40 percent of the people in this village are engaged in this cottage industry and the hammering of the metal at the furnace can be heard throughout the village.

Besides Hajo and Sarthebari, production centers of these Bell Metal Crafts are also located in the Titabari and Raha regions. Assamese metal handicrafts are not only available to the local people, but can also be purchased as souvenirs by tourists. In a bid to compete with changing times and demands, modern day artisans have used their innovative skills to introduce new designs and patterns to the traditional metal craft of Assam, including the ones that can be used as decoration pieces.

With our Mission of promoting India’s North East to the World thorough its Tourism, Culture, Tribes, Wildlife & Handicrafts, Jungleideas  brings forth to you to the option of owning these prized Bell Metal crafts of Assam at your doorstep. We work closely with the manufacturers of Bell Crafts at Sarthebari and Hajo and ensure to bring to you 100% genuine and original products that will bring a bewildering grandeur to your dining needs.

Make your meals exciting and HOT! with flavors from the Second Hottest Pepper in the World ~ ‘Bhut Jolokia’ Pickle and others..

Imagine a chili so hot that you would need hand gloves to handle it! Well, this chili is the second hottest pepper in the world and is termed as the ‘Bhut Jolokia’ (Bhut meaning Ghost & Jolokia meaning Chili). Other names of this pepper are ‘Bih Jolokia’ (the poison chilli) and ‘Naga Jolokia’ (named after the ferocious Naga warrior tribe).

India’s North East has been home to the ‘Bhut Jolokia’ from times immemorial. But stories of this pepper have spread across the west and westerners too are aware of the hotness of the ‘Bhut Jolokia’. The pepper was inducted in the Guinness Book of World Records as the spiciest chili in the world in 2006 and it was only ’til 2013 that the ‘Bhut Jolokia’ lost this coveted title. 

Although there are many commercial uses of the ‘Bhut Jolokia’ but in North East this chilly is mostly used for pickle preparation, flavoring curries and for home remedies for ailments like gastritis, arthritis and chronic indigestion problems. Restaurants across North East take pride in offering this chilly on their menu cards. The famous fast food joint Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) has included ‘Bhut Jolokia‘ as an ingredient for the new and unique Flaming Crunch Chicken, a signature crisp and juicy chicken dish of the company.

Jungleideas would like everyone across the World reap the benefits of this Chili and hence we introduce to you an option of having it right across your table to add a savory delight to your afternoon and evening meals. We have collaborated with households across the State of Assam and introduce to you the ‘Bhut Jolokia’ Pickle ~ the Spice of North East India!

Each of our pickle flavors have been carefully picked and processed with other natural ingredients of the State to make your meals tastier and Healthier! Ingredients in our pickle like Bamboo shoot are known to contain vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin E, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate and pantothenic acid. Minerals found in bamboo shoots include calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, zinc, copper, manganese, selenium and iron. Other natural pickles available with us are Brinjal, Garlic, Gourd, Bitter Gourd, Green Chili and Mustard, Tamarind and many more.

Our Pickles being Home made do not use any artificial preservatives and hence can be consumed across all age groups (Bhut Jolokia might not be recommended because of its hotness level). Available across 80 gm pouches at a pretty reasonable price we would request you to try these flavors immediately and start reaping the benefits of Mother Nature from India’s  Paradise Unexplored ~ the Incredible North East of India!
