Phirni is a sweet dish from Kashmir, and is as beautiful as the place itself. A milk sweet that’s sure to capture lots of attention when served!


1 litre milk
250gm sugar
50gm rice Flour
6-8 drops rose water
15gm almonds
15gm Pistachios


Skin the almonds and pistachios by immersing them in hot water and then in cold water. This makes the skinning easier.
Dissolve the rice flour in a small portion of the milk and mix till there are no lumps. Now combine with the remaining milk.
Cook over a medium flame, the rice flour and milk mixture for about 20-30 minutes till it becomes smooth and creamy. Stir continuously.
Add in the sugar and continue cooking for 2-3 minutes more.
Remove from flame and add the almonds, pistachios and rose water.
When the mix cools, pour out into a serving dish and refrigerate.
Phirni is ready to be served in half an hour's time.
