It's one (we call it 'pati-sapta') among some dozens types of 'Pitha's we Bengalis prepare and adore. Winter is the season of pitha and payesh for food lovers in Bengal. Rice flour and jaggery (available in winter only... fresh ) are used mostly, but there are some other ingredients too - like, 'mug dal' (lentil), Kheer, suji etc.

Besides 'pati-sapta' there are puli-pitha (both of rice and dal), gokul pitha, chusi-pitha, sara-pitha, chandrapuli .... etc. etc.

I know it's not technically a sweet but it is a dessert / pudding... I just love shrikhand with some fresh fruits. Delicious!
