Phirni is an authentic North Indian sweet that is mainly prepared during festive seasons and special occasions. It is a classic sweet that is prepared by adding ground rice to milk and sugar; and cooking it.

The rice phirni is similar to rice kheer, yet different in its texture; the main difference is that the rice is ground in phirni. The aroma of the cardamom powder and rose water enhance its rich flavours and the dry fruits give it a nutty, crunchy effect.

The rice pudding is usually chilled and served in matkas or earthen pots. It can be prepared for parties, as it is simple in preparation and does not take too much time; and is liked by all. If you want to try this recipe at home, watch the video and read the step-by-step procedure with images.
