Phirni is one of the popular and traditional Indian dessert. It is a creamy rice pudding, flavoured with a touch of cardamom and kesar. It is suitable as baby food too :) There are many variations as some add grinding strawberries as a twist to look even more attractive or use of rose petals etc etc. Here I have kept it simple as it was my first try. The result ended up in positive comments :) so do try this osm and tasty delight friends :)

4 tbsp Basmati rice

1 liter Milk

3/4 Cup Sugar

Pinch of Saffron

Pinch of Cardamom

Badam or Pista sliced for Garnish.


First clean the rice and soak it atleast for half an hour. Drain and grind it into coarse paste. Mix 3 tbsp of cold milk into the paste and keep it aside.

Bring the milk to boil. Add the dissolved paste and mix them well without forming lumps. Stir constantly till the rice gets cooked. Once the consistency gets thicker, add sugar and saffron. Cook till the sugar dissolves and consistency of the phirni gets creamy and thick. Sprinkle with cardamom powder and mix well. Allow the mixture to cool and transfer them into the china bowl or any serving bowl. Garnish with sliced dry fruits and serve hot or cold :)
