Sometimes you really don’t need a cooking. Just do it. Yes, today’s traditional Assamese breakfast known as Jolpaan doesn’t need any cooking. Jolpan is a snack, breakfast or a mini meal usually consists of various forms of rice like ground roasted rice (xandoh), boiled in its husk and flattened (chira/aval), puffed rice (akhoi /malar, mudhi /murmura /pori), and variety of glutinous rice found in Assam called as bora saul, kumol saul; this unique variety of rice can be eaten without cooking, just by soaking them and all these rice forms are eaten along with curd /yogurt (doi), jaggery (goor), and various pitha. It is served with great fervor during the most popular festival Bihu of Assamese culture, in weddings and other occasions too.
