ना गोरान फोराननाय (Na gwran pwrannai)


Na gwran (dried fish) is the delicacy of the Bodo i.e., the very small fish left on the surface of inundated land after the water has subsided. The fish is collected in large quantities near the banks of the river and then simply dried in the sun or over the bonfire. The dried fish is greatly prized by the Bodos and somewhat acts as a savory addition to the various traditional dishes. The fishing is carried out in the numerous shallow hill streams, and river streams in which his dwellings abound by using various traditional fishing tools.
