Milk, full fat – 1 lt

Almonds – 25 nos

Cardamom – 5 nos

Rice – 4 tbsp

Milk, full fat – a dash

Saffron – a pinch

Sugar – ½ cup and 1 tbsp


Soak around 25 almonds overnight. Before starting to cook, soak 4 spoons of rice in water for about 30 minutes. In a pan, pour 1 liter milk and bring it to a boil. Meanwhile, peel the soaked almonds and cardamom and grind them to a smooth paste with half a cup of milk. Add the paste to the boiling milk and cook for about five to seven minutes. Drain the soaked rice and grind it to a paste and add to the simmering milk. Keep stirring continuously to avoid lump formation. Drop in a few strands of saffron and keep cooking in low heat till it reaches a pudding-like consistency. Add sugar to the mixture and stir till the sugar dissolves. Turn off the heat and let the phirni cool down. Transfer the phirni to earthen pots and refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours. Garnish with chopped almonds and saffron strands and serve chilled.
