Tanvir – I am waiting to eat the cheva rice that we will get at the feast. I really love it.
Fatima– How will the cheva rice be prepared?
Sonmoni – They will light a fire and boil the water in the big
tao (a big vessel). On this vessel, they will put the Kadhahi containing soaked rice and cover it with banana leaves. After some time, the cheva rice will be cooked and ready to eat.
