Abstract: Ethnobotanical studies were conducted among various tribes in different tribal districts of Orissa. It has been found that 6 plant species are used by the tribal people for preparation of Bakhar, which is generally used for the fermentation of rice. They were further used to prepare the drink, Handia. The uses of these 6 plant species are recorded for the first time.
