Phirnee,a Holi festival's treat

Updated on August 14, 2014

Have it!

Phirnee is a Nutrious treat.

Phirnee (rice pudding) is a wonderful Indian dessert, it is so yummy that children love to have it. Generally it is made during festivals in our country .some people add bhang to it during Holi which may make your head go roaming :).

Ingredients :-

Two Liters Whole milk
1/4 cup Basmati or Gobind bhoog rice(washed and grinded into granular paste)
3/4 cup sugar
few cardamom
1/4 cup Pistachio
1/4 cup slivered almonds
few strands of kesar (saffron)

How to Prepare

Boil the milk over a low flame and bring it to a boil.see that it does not settle down on the wok and get charred It is advisable to use a thick bottomed vessel that is larger than the content of it to prevent overflow on boiling of the milk.Wash the rice in tap water. Drain the water from the rice .Grind the rice with some milk in a grinder .Keep the paste granular so that Phirnee provides slightly chewy and nutty texture.
Lower the flame and slowly add the rice paste to the simmering milk and keep stirring all the time to prevent any lumps formation in the Phirnee.
Let the rice get cooked in the milk and gradually you will feel the consistency of the milk starts to change and thicken in about five minutes. Continue to stir. The rice needs to be thoroughly cooked .
Add the sugar and keep stirring,if the Phirnee is thick you may add some milk to thin it. On cooling phiranee thickens ,check whether it is thick enough to be poured in the bowels,we must do the plate test ,in this test pour a spoonful of prepared phiranee on the plate on cooling if it does not drips then it is said to be done and ready.
Pound Cardamoms and sprinkle on the phiranee , on the bowelsof phirnee you may spread varak or silver cover and garnish with almonds and pista and kesar strands
Let it cool slightly before transferring to the bowels(if you use earthen bowls ,it would taste awesome) Chill for at least 3 to 4 hours before serving.
.Saffron may be added when the milk is boiling ,it give a kesari(yellow orange colour) to the pudding .

note:-soak the earthen bowels in water before using for few hours.
