Phirni

Phirni is a creamy dessert made with milk, rice and dry fruits. It is a very common dessert in North India. It is prepared on festive occasions. It is similar to Rice Kheer. Phirni's recipe is very easy to prepare. No Masterchef skills required.πŸ˜‰ However, patience is required and the result is awesome! Just see this pic. Isn't it mouth watering πŸ˜πŸ˜‹ There is a saying in Hindi, "Sabr ka fal meetha hota h." which means the result of patience is sweet! Well, I think this saying is definitely related to kheer's family dessertsπŸ˜‹πŸ˜…
