Phirni is an Indian sweet, made of rice, milk and sugar as main ingredients. Some people soak the rice and grind it to fine paste, and some use rice flour to make it. I learned making Phirni from my in-laws. My S-I-L used to make this very often, whenever we had guests or for parties. It was her favorite dessert And even I just fell in love with this sweet. Simple yet irresistible. So, here is the recipe.
1 liter milk,
4-5 tbsp of Basmati rice,
1 cup sugar,
a pinch of cardamom powder,
2 tbsp of ghee/ clarified butter,
1 tbsp of slivered almonds,
1 tbsp of golden raisins,
1 tbsp of slivered cashews,
1/4 tsp of rose water/rose essence and
few strands of saffron.
Grind the rice into a coarse powder (like fine sooji/semolina). Boil the milk in a heavy bottomed pan with a pinch of cardamom powder and sugar. When it starts boiling, add the powdered rice slowly, stirring the milk with the other hand, to avoid any lumps. Keep stirring continuously for 20 - 25 minutes or until the rice is cooked and the milk has thickened. Remove it away from the heat and keep aside.
In another small pan, heat the ghee and fry the dry fruits-Almonds, cashew nuts and raisins till light brown and add to the dessert. Also add the rose essence and Saffron strands. Mix well and let it cool at room temperature. Chill it in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours. Garnish with few strands of saffron. Best served when chilled.
