Bora Chaulor Payas


  • 2 ltr milk
  • 50 gm red sticky rice
  • 50 gm sugar
  • 100 gm jaggery
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2-3 cardamoms
  • 3 tablespoon ghee

Narikol Pitha

The narikol(coconut) pitha is prepared exactly like the ghila pitha except that it is made with an addition of grounded coconut which which builds in a certain texture and imparts  a strong sweet influence over the pitha.Like the ghila pitha, even in this process, the exact quantities of ingredients need to be strictly adhered to otherwise you will not get the perfect pithas.With the right amount of ingredients, it tends to be a simple process of preparation by mixing all ingredients together. The bugbear(for many including me) is the frying process..most often it doesn’t end up with the perfect crispness or fails to stay as a whole and breaks away..this is a result of the   mix of ingredients that hasn’t gone right..the confluence of the proportion of the ingredients needs to be correct to arrive at that perfect round grainless and spotless pitha with a fine crumb and an outer edge. This is the most tricky part which is hard to master and not everybody can champion this..but this is my mother’s best pitha of all including the ghila pitha which she makes with great elan and perfection. They say its all in your hands when it comes to cooking..they are more perfect then anything else with a deep professional touch that scores very high on taste ,flavour and texture
