Gobindabhog is a rice cultivar from West Bengal, India. It is a short-grain, white, aromatic, sticky rice having a sweet buttery flavor. It derives its name from its usage as the principal ingredient in the preparation of the offerings to Govindaji, the family deity of the Setts of Kolkata. Gobindobhog was traditionally cultivated in the districts of Bardhaman, Hooghly, Nadia, and Birbhum. Later, it began to be cultivated in Bankura and Purulia. In August 2017, the Gobindabhog rice was allotted the geographical indication tag of West Bengal by the Government of India. It has many traditional Bengali recipes intended for it specifically.
