Who can resist chilled creamy Phirni, an absolute delight…and my all-time fav Indian Dessert!
But making it the traditional way requires much of your time and attention…with constant supervision.
So here’s presenting…
An easy no-fuss recipe that reinvents the summer classic to fit into your busy lifestyle!
This can be made easily by a first timer, but with results that will satisfy even the seasoned expert! 🙂

Method:
Wash and drain 1/4 cup rice and add 1/2 cup water.
image
Cover and cook rice in microwave for 5 minutes till half-cooked.
image
Grind the half-cooked rice with 3/4 cup milk and 1/4 cup almonds in a mixi till it becomes a paste.
image
I like to keep a slight grain in the rice paste.
image
Now add 4 cups milk to the rice paste and blend in the mixi to ensure that they are no lumps.
image
Rinse crockpot with water. Pour the above mix into the crockpot.
image
Cover and cook for about 4 hours on high setting.
image
Add sugar to taste, I added about 3/4 cup sugar and 3-4 crushed green cardamom…
image
and cook for another 1 hour till the mix lightly coats the back of a spoon and resembles a thin custard.
image
Allow to cool. Transfer to serving dish, I used an earthen pot, however you can use any pretty serving dish.
image
Chill and set for 3-4 hours. Serve garnished with chopped nuts and some silver varakh…enjoy the cool creamy delicious summer-time treat! 🙂

And here’s sharing a little poem….I wrote on the occasion of HOLI celebrating my fav Indian dessert! 🙂

Ho jaye HOLI ki shuruaat
kuch meethe ke saath
Jaise ghule mooh mein
Yeh malaidar PHIRNI
Pyar basse hamare
Rishton mein bhi
Bhool chale sab gile shikve
Aao kare harsh-ullas
Sangh khelain HOLI
Lal peele hare gulabi
Rangon ke saath!
