Pulir r Chushir payesh/Riceflour dumplings stuffed with coconut and cooked in sweetened milk

Chushi and Pulir payesh is a very popular dish in Bengal. It is specifically or you can say traditionally made on Makar Shankranti, that is around 14-15 January of any year when the rice is harvested.

It is very simple and easy and believe me it doesn’t need a load of sugar. You can simply replace with jaggery (Gur- specially patali gur)

So let’s start making Chushi and Pulir payesh…in my style ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡

Type- Sweets

Preparation time- 20-25 minutes

Cooking time- 45-50 minutes


  • 2 cups rice flour
  • 150 gm grated coconut
  • 1 cup milk+1 cup water
  • 1 cup boiling water (only 1/2 will be required)
  • 1 litre whole milk
  • 3-4 tbs sugar


  • For the coconut stuffing- In a pan add 150 gm grated coconut and to it add 1 cup milk mixed with 1 cup water
  • Now the purpose is to cook the coconut and evaporate all the liquid
  • While cooking the color of the stuffing will change a bit
  • When the liquid is evaporated and the coconut has turned into a doughy consistency,then take it out and allow to cool
  • For the riceflour dough- In a pan boil 1 cups of water and keep aside,now in a dry pan add 2 cups of riceflour and mix and add the boiling water little by little to make the dough,we needed around 1/2 cup of the water and now take them out
  • Now very carefully knead the riceflour dough
  • Take the dough and wrap it in a wet towel
  • Now pinch small roundels and flatten with a disc and take 1 tsp of the coconut stuffing and wrap like a dumpling ๐ŸฅŸ
  • This stuffed riceflour dough is called Puli in Bengal
  • Another version is pinch very small roundels and roll with palm into an elongated tapering shaped thing called Chushi
  • In this dish you can add either of one or the both
  • In between start boiling 1 litre of full fat milk
  • When it is reduced to 2/3rd then add 3 tbs sugar and mix
  • Now carefully add the chushi and then the puli
  • The dish will be ready when the milk is reduced to 1/2
  • Our Chushi and Pulir payesh is ready
