Chirar Payesh / Flattened Rice Pudding ..........

Chire is also known as poha , powa , flat rice , pressed rice or flaked rice . This recipe is traditionally made in Bangladesh . My Grandma is from Bangladesh .............. so she makes this wonderfully healthy ..........Bangladeshi sweet dessert .
For sweetness khejurer gur is used traditionally but if unable to get this , use brown sugar . Though it is pretty simple dessert and but tastes awesome.
