Creamy rice pudding flavoured with saffron and cardamom.
Creamy and grainy at the same time, a phirni is the perfect dessert to complete a grand meal. Coarse rice paste cooked in milk flavoured with sugar, cardamom powder and saffron till thick. Garnished with pistachios phirni is best served chilled. It is one of the Indian desserts that is not excessively sweet and that is my favourite part about it.
