    Wow. I adore Indian desserts but our problem is finding the good ingredients to make it taste anything to match this! I’ve learned from you, though, that next time friends are in India I ask them to bring me Jaggery; I love desserts with cardamon in it! Looks sensational.

    Yes, Jill. Jaggery is the “secret” of the subtle flavour this dessert has. When your friends are in India, please tell them to look for the moist, dark-brown variety, available mainly in Eastern India. That is preferable.

    Thank you, Feeling Food, and all others, for liking the recipe. It is one of the oldest dessert recipes in West Bengal, India! So thrilling to imagine that our great gandmothers’ great grandmothers used to make the same dessert the same way!

    I had to Google jaggery, had no idea what it is. That’s why I love reading different blogs, learning something new everyday.
    The rice dessert sounds so good. thanks for sharing

    Roxana Greengirl, yes, jaggery is a healthy, natural alternative to sugar. It has an unmatched flavour of its own. Thanks for stopping by and appreciating the recipe!

    So THAT’s how you make it. Somehow, I don’t think that’s how it would look if I tried it….
