Gulab Phirni

Gulab Phirni is a rice and milk pudding with a flavor and aroma of fresh red roses .

Phirni is a simple pudding , but a traditional one , made on festivals , here I have given it a slight twist by adding  rose water , rose petals and finally some edible color . One can minus the color and add some crushed rose petals too for the pink hue.

Gulab Phirni is similar to the Gulab Kheer , for Kheer we use whole rice whereas coarsely ground rice are used for Phirni . We can give these a twist with different flavours . The creamy dessert will surely please you either ways . I have a collection of various Kheers and Phirnis and all compiled on one page , do check them out.

While making phirni one must make sure to add the rice paste to cold milk and then switch on the flame of the pot . Also one has to stir the milk constantly so that no lumps are formed . Even after you switch off the flame keep stirring so that no skin is formed. Once it comes to room temperature , chill the dessert and serve .

Phirni , Kheer , Payasam – well the ingredients are the same , but with a little difference get a new avtar and of course a new flavor. The Gulab Phirni is my Day 1 post under the theme Milk based Puddings.

  1. I am totally in love with everything in this post – whether it is the clicks or the backdrop or the pretty pink of this delicious looking dessert or all that flavor! The aroma I am sure was amazing and tasted delicious as well…

  2. OMG that phirni looks sooo pretty – the color is just amazing. I am sure it must have tasted as exotic as it looks.
    Also that backdrop looks great too.
