Gulab Phirni or rose water infused rice pudding is a traditional North Indian sweet dish prepared from ground rice which is cooked in creamy milk. Phirni is traditionally served in clay pots chilled. It’s a very simple sweet dish to make, and the result is a delicious, rich and creamy pudding with rose flavor to it.
Let’s move on to how to make gulab phirni
Recipe adapted from – everyday musing
1/2 cup Rice
1 liter milk(preferable full cream milk)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tspn of rose water
Few strands of rose for garnish
Nuts for garnish
Method of preparation:-
1. Soak rice for minimum 2 hours. Grind them into paste, keep aside
2. Boil milk in a heavy bottomed pan. When milk starts to boil, add the rice paste. Reduce the flame to low and keep stirring in between. Cook on low flame for 20-30 mins or until rice is cooked through. Keep stirring, other wise the rice will stick to bottom and will form lumps.
3. Now add sugar and stir well, finally add rose water and cook for 2-3 mins. Gulab phirni is ready.
4. Transfer them to bowls, refrigerate it for about 1 hour. Just before serving garnish with rose petals and nuts and serve chilled. Phirni is best in clay pots, hence I used clay pots.
