PHIRNI RECIPE – MILK PUDDING USING RICE FLOUR

Print Friendly and PDF
Yum
PHIRNI, a famous North Indian dessert is usually made with rice soaked & grind to a smooth paste.For a change i tried with rice flour suggested by MB in her cookbook. Its very easy to make and tasted great .Its a very good replacement for Payasam .Usually Phirni looks thick. I made it little thin as per our taste.Please make it as u need.I have updated this recipe as per the suggestions given by an anonymous reader...If u want to make badam phirni, soak few badams in water , blanch & chop them finely. Add the chopped badam at the end after switching off the flame.I used badam just to garnish.

Phirni

INGREDIENTS :
  • Milk – 1/2 litre ( around 2 cups )
  • Rice flour – 3/4 tbsp
  • Sugar – 1/2 cup
  • Cardamom powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Cashewnuts , pista & badam – Few (finely chopped)
  • Rose water  or kewara - 1/2 tsp (for additional flavor , i dint use)
METHOD :
  • Mix rice flour in 1/2 cup of milk and without forming any lumps.
  • Heat rest of the milk in a heavy vessel.
  • When it starts to boil ,add the rice flour paste and cook stirring constantly.
  • It takes nearly 15-20 minutes to thicken . Keep the flame medium low - high to avoid spilling.Stir now & then..
  • When the milk becomes thick add sugar & switch off the flame..
  • Stir well till the sugar dissolves completely. Check for sweetness .
  • Mix cardamom powder , rose water & chill in refrigerator (* Do not freeze )
Serve in small cups with fried nuts on top !!
NOTES :
  • I made it slightly thin..Add milk if u want more diluted.Adjust sugar accordingly.
  • Thickening time of milk may vary according to the heat. 
  • U can add saffron soaked in warm milk instead of cardamom powder & name it as “ kesar phirni “
  • We can use fine chiroti rawa for thickening of milk instead of rice flour.

  29. yeah with rice flour it becomes much simpler. and i trust you for the taste of it...can you increase the font size by one...or am i the only one having trouble??

  30. It is a very easy and tasty recipe. However it took longer than stated (it took me about 25 mins as I boiled the milk on medium low).
    My suggestions are:
    - boil the milk mixture in medium high (not on low as given in the instructions). Probably with this I would have taken 15 mins.
    - add 1/2 tsp of rose water or kewara for added flavour.
    Thanks,
    Neha
