Phirni


Continuing on  a sweet note, here's one more  yummylicious desert which is more like a pudding made with  rice  and milk. This pudding when served cold in the earthen pots, has its own defining taste. Quite a popular road side  desert in North India, it  is very simple to make. Just go ahead and give it a try coz we promise every spoonful is worth it.

Prep time: 45 mins
Ingredients


Basmati Rice (soaked): 1/4 cup
Sugar: 1/2 cup or more
Half and Half / Whole Milk: 1 cup
Cardamom Powder: 1 teaspoon
Pistachios (chopped): 2 tablespoon
Slivered almonds: 1 tablespoon
Saffron: a pinch
Rose water: 1 teaspoon

Soak the rice for about 2 hours. Grind it into a fine paste. Its doesn't have to extremely smooth. A little bit of the rice morsels will add a nice touch. Meanwhile heat the milk with the sugar continuously stirring to ensure it doesn't burn or stick to the bottom. Add the rose water and cardamom powder. When the milk starts to get hot, add the ground rice paste and keeping stirring until the rice is fully cooked in the milk-sugar mixture. It will start to thicken.Turn off the heat after the rice is cooked and the milk is like a thickish  custard consistency. Stir in the chopped nuts. Mix the saffron in little milk and add to the pudding. Set it in individual bowls and let it chill. Serve cold.
