6 Ingredients


pinch of salt

75 g basmati rice

1-litre full-fat milk

5-10 strands of saffron

75 g sugar

1/2 tsp cardamom powder


Wash the rice well. Drain the water & let it air dry. Once dry, grind it into a coarse powder.

In a cup of milk mix this rice powder & keep it aside. (this will prevent the rice from forming lumps).

In a kadhai, warm the remaining milk & add the saffron to it.

Cook the milk, stirring continuously until it thickens & reduces a bit (approximately 10 minutes).

Now, gradually add the rice-milk mixture to the boiling milk and cook until the phirni thickens. Keep stirring. The consistency should be neither too thin nor too thick.

Add the sugar & a pinch of salt now & mix well until combined well.

Finally, add the cardamom powder.

After cooling the phirni, pour it into the earthen bowls /any ceramic or glass bowls (soak the bowls in water for 30 minutes before using), cover with kitchen wraps & store in the fridge overnight before serving.
