I happened to read about this recipe from Girliechef. She had posted a recipe about phirni which instigated me to try it. The original recipe is here. I took the base from the recipe and tweaked it little to bring my version of the recipe. This week being Navarathiri, I had few friends who came home on thursday. I dint know what sweet to make that day and I thought about this Phirni that i saw in her blog. Thought why not make it. It came out very well. Thanks to Girliechef for her Phirni recipe..


Basmati Rice - 1/4 cup
Milk - 4 cups
Sugar - 1 cup
Cardomom - 6-8 powdered
Roasted nuts and raisins - 1 tbsp
Saffron Strand - 1/2 pinch


Cook basmati rice and mash it. Keep it aside.

Boil milk in a pan and when the milk starts to become thick, add this cooked and mashed rice to it. Mix well until the rice blends in milk. No lumps should be found. Let it boil for about 5 mins

Mix sugar, cardamom powder, saffron strands.

Bring it to boil for about 5 mins stirring in between so that milk doesn't get burnt.

Garnish with roasted nuts and raisins. You can transfer it in serving bowls and refrigerate for about an hour and then serve.

You can always dilute if you like thin consistency.
