Stirred To Sweetness

A bowl of Indian “rice pudding,” garnished with almond flakes.

Payesh is the Indian cousin of the rice pudding. Neither baked, nor pressure-cooked, it’s prepared on the stovetop—and cooked with kinetic energy.

The proof of the superiority of this dessert lies in the cook’s ability to have strong arms, for to bring it to its desired consistency—a thickness between that of maple syrup and mousse—requires gently stirring a mixture of milk, sugar, and rice, for a long time.
