How to make Bengali Chaler Payesh

  1. Boil milk in a wide bowl and when it starts to boil, add bay leaf and slightly crushed cardamom pods.
  2. Wash the rice and add it to the milk. Allow it to boil in a low to medium flame till the rice gets cooked well, but it should be firm and soft without loosing it's shape.
  3. Generally, rice takes longer time to cook. So keep mixing every now and then and make sure it is not burnt in the bottom. When the milk gets evaporated, add little water whenever necessary.
  4. When the rice is almost cooked, remove the bay leaf (optional) and add sugar, a pinch of salt and mix well. Let it boil till the mixture thickens slightly.
