How to make Bengali Payesh – Rice Kheer


1) Boil 1 lit milk in a pan.
2) Remove the seeds from the cardamom and grind it . Personally, I don’t prefer whole cardamom in Payesh as I have to spit out the cardamom while eating. So what you can put the cardamom outer shell inside this spice infuser and soak in the boiling milk for 5 mins.
3) Add the rice and cook for 20 mins in a medium heat until the rice is soft. Stir occasionally so that the rice does not stick to the bottom.
4) Add the condensed milk and stir well.
5) Add sugar, cashew nut and raisin and cook it for 5 more mins.
6) Lastly add the cardamom powder and mix well. Cover the lid and let it cool. Put it in the refrigerator when it is at room temperature.

Serving: 3-4
Cooking Time: 45 min

What does it mean by payesh? Is it like regular kheer recipe or different? interested in making this sweet dish but wanna be sure first about its taste and popularity. otherwise i will make regular kheer which is more easy and taste is also fine.

Payesh is a new pleasure for me. I will enjoy it for sure. I heard its name couple of months for the first time in my life and today I saw its recipe too . I am deciding to make it on the upcoming birthday of my younger brother.

Payesh seems interesting to me . As I am already a admirer of desserts, I take it well, am looking into the recipe and will make it. The word Bengali here adds more attraction as Bengali sweets are already love for the world.
