Phirni is a simple delicious dessert from North India and gets done in a jiffy . All you need is soaked ground rice , milk and sugar . Once your basic Phirni is ready , you could flavour it with kesar , cardamom , nuts or even fruit pieces.

Kesari Phirni is flavored with kesar / saffron . Saffron is exotic and most  Indian sweets are enhanced with it . It not only adds a hue to it , but also lends it a beautiful flavor and aroma . So the Phirni is flavored with kesar and cardamom , after chilling it , pour into individual cups . Add some mango cubes and drizzle Jannat e Gulab ! Finish with some nuts and rose petals and you are ready to serve . 

This Indian Trifle was a total hit and my guests loved it so much that they even carried it along with them !
