Abstract: <smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" name="country-region" downloadurl="http://www.5iantlavalamp.com/"><smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" name="place" downloadurl="http://www.5iantlavalamp.com/"> Rice-beer prepared at household level of the aboriginal communities of Assam is served to all irrespective of age and sex. Certain plant species are traditionally used by the <i>Rabhas</i> of Goalpara district of Assam for the preparation of rice-beer cakes as well as rice beer. Goalpara district of Assam is situated on the southern bank of the river Brahmaputra. Several villages of the district are the homeland of some <i>Indo-Mongoloid</i> tribes like the <i>Bodos, Garos, Hajongs, Karbis, Rabhas</i>, etc. Rice-beer accounts for a major portion of the daily caloric intake of these tribes. These tribes traditionally use certain herbs for the preparation of starter cake to be used in the making of alcoholic drink or rice-beer. Numerically, <i>Rabhas</i> are the most dominant tribe of the district. The study is aimed for the need of a detailed study on the curative properties of the herbs used by the <i>Rabhas</i> for the preparation of rice-beer cakes and rice-beer, which may provide better and beneficial remedies for many ailments. </smarttagtype></smarttagtype>
