Bengali Chaler payesh recipe


I am very happy to share my first post on Bengali recipes , Chaler payesh Smile.Last month i posted a query in CAL group in Facebook to suggest me some yummy bengali lunch menu recipes.I got so many suggestions and recipe links to try.Thanks everyone for helping me in finding out some good Bengali vegetarian recipes.Sorry,as i was busy in travel and household chores,I couldn’t try them immediately.But i kept searching and bookmarking some yummy recipes from various websites.And finally i made a delectable Bengali vegetarian thali for the first time on last saturday.I prepared around 8 dishes which are a must & should recipes in an authentic Bengali lunch menu.We loved the thali very much and i had the same for dinner too Thumbs up.

Before sharing the entire platter,i just want to post all the recipes one by one here.To start with,here is an easy,tasty,simple Bengali chaler payesh recipe.This payesh is nothing but our Indian style rice pudding or rice kheer made by boiling thick milk with aromatic rice(Gobindo bogh) n sugar.Its a very tasty,simple to make & flavourful Bengali dessert.This dessert is prepared in all Bengali homes for most of their festivals like Durga puja,Lakshmi puja etc.I had some doubts between this payesh & Nolen gurer payesh and its consistency.Special thanks to Deepasri Deb for giving a clear explanation which helped me to make this payesh perfect.It turned out so delicious and very flavourful.We loved it a lot.I have made this twice within a week.Once with basmati and second time with jeera rice.The smell of basmati rice/Jeera rice,bay leaf and cardamom while boiling in milk was fantasticSmile.One must feel this fragrance more than i say.So I would give 5* rating for this recipe and suggest everyone to try this yummy,easy bengali sweet recipe if u are a beginner for this cuisine.U will love it for sure Smile.And for this recipe,i referred many websites like Hamaaree rasoi,Cook like a bong and Sanjeev kapoor’s Video.

chaler payesh step1
  • Wash the rice and add to the milk.Allow it to boil in low to medium flame till rice gets cooked well but it should be firm & soft without losing its shape.Generally rice takes longer time to cook.So keep mixing every now and then and make sure it is not burnt in the bottom.When the milk gets evaporated add little water whenever necessary.

  • When the rice is almost cooked,remove bay leaf(optional) & add sugar,a pinch of salt & mix well.Let it boil till the mixture thickens slightly.

Note

  • Thanks to Ushnish Gosh ji for sharing few tips to make this payesh perfect.I have added them above.
  • The consistency of this payesh should be thick.So make it accordingly.
  • I removed the bay leaf before adding sugar by following sanjeev kapoor’s video.If u wish,u can keep it till the end.
  • I felt jeera rice gives more flavour than Basmati rice for this payesh.But its purely ur choice.
Enjoy this thick,chilled,creamy bengali payesh.It tastes yumm !!
