Handia (Also hadia, handiya or hadiya) is a rice beer commonly made by the indigenous people in Bihar, Jharkhand, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh states of India.
The making involves the use of ranu tablets, which is essentially a combination of about 20-25 herbs and acts as a fermentor. The ranu tablets are then mixed with boiled rice and left to ferment. The drink is generally ready within a week. It is served cool and has lower alcoholic strength than other Indian country liquors.
