Abstract: The present study is a maiden report regarding the existence, preparation procedure and uses of Hukoti, a traditional indigenous dry fish product, prepared by different tribal communities of Upper Assam. Dressed and washed fish, mainly Puntius spp, are ground with deskinned stems of Colocasia macrorrhiza (L.) G. Don and leaves of Siju (Euphorbia ligulana Roxb.). The resultant paste, stuffed into bamboo cylinders and sealed using dry banana leaves and clay, are dried over kitchen fire for a period of 3-4months. Hukoti is used a pain killer and also used as a local therapeutic to cure malaria. In the present study, the authors have suggested various means to improve its overall quality and also potential avenues to commercialize the product.
