Indian Desert : Phirni



When I was in college, one of my friends insists me to try this dish in a Bengali restaurant and from then, I felt in love with Phirni. It is milk and rice based sweet dish. It is popular in North India and Pakistan. There are differ types of Phirni like Badam Phirni, Kesar Phirni, Rice Phirni, Mango Phirni etc. Phirni recipe is very easy and can be prepared with various common and exotic ingredients.

Here I’ll describe the Phirni prepared by rice and milk only. It is easy to make and available in every kitchen.

History of Phirni

I am not very much sure about the exact history or the origin of Phirni, but it is believed to be originated from Kashmir during the Mughal Empire in India.
