Bengali nolen gurer payesh / Rice pudding with date palm Jaggery is a rice pudding / payesh / kheer, flavored with date palm jaggery. A very popular Bengali dessert. This is the time (winter) when fresh date palm jaggery/ nolen gur is available in local markets of West Bengal and Bangladesh. The distinct, aromatic flavor of the date jaggery gives the recipe a unique taste. If you do not find it then you can use any other jaggery available to you. Here for rice, I have used Govindo bhog. You can also use any flavored basmati rice too. Ingredients which I have used to make this lip-smacking dish are mentioned below.
