Paan phirni

Paan kheer | Paan phirni recipe – Paan flavored phirni recipe – North Indian style rice kheer, flavored with paan leaves and Gulkand, a perfect dessert for parties and get together.

Usually Paan shots | beeda will be served towards the end of each meal in a restaurant meal or in weddings. I usually take paan ladoo or paan shots or beeda, when I go for potluck. After trying out a delicious paan ice cream in a restaurant in Chennai, I tried that too and posted it on Jeyashris kitchen.

Phirni is a popular dessert of India made with rice milk and sugar as main ingredients. I have posted Phirni recipe and also mango phirni recipe in Jeyashris kitchen. Also, we have a no-sugar-added dates phirni recipe too. Unlike Singapore, here we don’t get Paan leaves | vethalai in markets so easily. Even for festivals, we don’t get it in Indian shops. I just started growing it at home a few days back.

I got this idea of making paan kheer and got few tender tiny leaves from my friend’s terrace garden. The kheer | phirni turned out so well. We all enjoyed this after a Biryani meal and it was super refreshing. So if you have Paan leaves left after pooja | festival, go ahead and make this Paan phirni.

Notes

  1. Instead of grinding the rice, you can cook the soaked rice in the milk as how we do for Chawal ki kheer
  2.  Paan phirni tastes best when served chilled.
