Abstract: The ingredients and the method of preparing starter mixture (Rānu Dābāi ) and the fermentation of boiled rice for production of rice beer (Jhārā or Hārhiā) have been recorded as it is practiced by the Oraon and Santhal workers in Terai Tea Gardens. In addition to the use of five core plants (Oryza sativa, Coccinia grandis, Plumbago zeylanica, Vernonia cinerea and Clerodendrum viscosum), tribals use quite a few more plants to modify the taste and/or colour of Jhārā.
