PHIRNI RECIPE
Phirni is an exotic Indian dessert and though  i have heard about his Phirni many times but never tasted this anywhere. Last year while travelling back from India after attending my cousin’s wedding, while waiting in the airport bought a Femina magazine and saw this recipe of phirni there. After that i totally forgot about that and few weeks  back i suddenly came across by this book while cleaning my book shelf and made this Phirni for Krishna thjayani. I wanted to share this phirni recipe during that time but was busy with some other  posts so couldn’t post this recipe of phirni.
This phirni recipe is a must try one and without thinking too much i had 2 full bowl of Phirni and now craving while typing the post too !!

Note:

  • You can soak and grind few almonds along with rice to make this more richer.
  • I used low fat milk but still the texture was so creamy and thick. So no need to use full cream milk.
  • You can add rose essence in the last to make it a rose pudding.
