Nalengurer Payesh (rice Pudding With Palm Date Jaggery)
Payesh is one of the most common desserts. In our Bengal we make this dish in many special occasions. Payesh can be made in many ways. "Nalengurer Payesh" is a traditional Bengali rice pudding where palm date jaggery is used. It is an authentic Bengali sweet dish. This dessert is a must for " Makar Sangkranti" or"Poush Parban" in our Bengali culture.
To me this dish is synonymous with "Makar sangkranti" or "Poush Parban". In our culture it is indispensable on this occasion.
It reminds me of my childhood days. I still remember how I used to assist my mother in making this dessert. I used to chop the cashews and almonds. I also used to stir it occasionally.
Today I'm going to share with you this authentic recipe. Here goes the recipe.
