Kesari Phirni


Rice 75 gm

Milk 300 ml

Caster Sugar 30 gm

Saffron few strands

Green Cardamom Powder a pinch

Rose Water few drops

Slivered Almonds & Pistachios to garnish

Silver Foil & Rose Petals to garnish


Soak the saffron strands in a tsp of warm milk. Soak the rice in water for about one hour. Drain the water and grind it to a paste (should not be too coarse). In a heavy-bottomed pan, combine milk, sugar and the rice paste together and boil. Cook for about 15 to 20 minutes until the mixture is creamy and thick and coats the back of a spoon. Add the saffron and cardamom and mix well. Remove from heat. Add the rose water and mix well. Refrigerate for around 2 hours until chilled and set. Garnish with slivered nuts, silver foil, rose petals and serve.
