As the nation is all set to mark Sharad Purnima on 30th October 2020, we bring you a kheer recipe, adding a Bengali spin to it. Kheer in Bengal is referred to as payesh - a must-have offering on the Bhog thali. For the uninitiated, kheer/payesh holds a constant place in the Sharad Purnima or Kojagari Purnima Puja ritual. The devotees, who refrain from eating the whole day, break their fast after puja with kheer.

Difference Between Kheer And Payesh:

Although both kheer and payesh include the same ingredients in the recipe, but what makes the two different from each other is the consistency. While kheer is a bit runny in nature, payesh is of thick and creamy consistency. Kheer can be made with basmati or any aromatic rice, but a traditional Bengali payesh is always made with Gobindo bhog rice.

Here we bring you an easy payesh recipe that can be made with the basic food ingredients you have at home.
