Khejur Gurer Payesh is a Bengali comfort dessert prepared with short grain aromatic 'gorinbobhog rice' or 'kalijeera rice'. It is often sweetened with sugar but on special occasion the white payesh is turned into mild brown by using kejur gur (date palm jaggery).

Chia Coconut Mango Pudding is a creamy chia pudding. I prepared it with coconut milk layered with mango bites and topped with more coconut flakes. It's smooth and deliciously sweet at every bite with a mild crunch from the coconut flakes. You can make this chia pudding with any variety of seasonal fruits you like. But I have to say that mangoes it extra tasty.
The layers of texture, color and flavor make this Coconut Chia Granola Parfait not only tasty but also a lovely looking healthy breakfast. It is sure to brighten up your morning. I am not a morning person and so, a breakfast that doesn’t involve too much work or brainpower always makes me happy. The layering of this Coconut Chia Granola Parfait is easy and fun. Avyan helped me with the layering and he loved it. The little fella is still not into smoothie but he enjoyed the parfait a lot, especially the coconut chia pudding.

Wish you all a very happy 2016! I hope that your year is filled with love and joy, surprises and success, happiness and laughter. And I hope that you get to fulfill all your dreams and spend everyday with a smile!
