The holy month of Ramadan is drawing towards an end with 'Meethi Eid' or Eid-Al-Fitr just around the corner. Ramadan is the time when Muslims around the world observe fasts (roza) for the entire month. Some of them do not consume even a drop of water and break their fast in evening, after offering their prayers. This year, the month of Ramadan would conclude on 25th May, 2020 (dates may vary as per the lunar movement) with the festival of Eid-Al-Fitr.
With the pandemic of Coronavirus dampening the spirits, Eid might not be celebrated with as much fervour as before since people can't visit their loved ones. But there is a lot that we can do at home including enjoying a lavish feast of mouth-watering dishes. Much like any other festival, Eid is also celebrated with a string of delectable sweet and savoury treats. Eid-Al-Fitr is also known as 'Meethi Eid' and we think we've got another excuse to treat our sweet tooth! Also what's a festival without some sweets anyway, right?
So here we've got a delectable phirni recipe packed with rose essence and crunchy nuts! Sewaiyan or phirni and sheer khurma are some of the staple sweets during the festival of Eid and there's absolutely nothing more special and delicious than a homemade one. The gulab phirni recipe we have is made with soaked and ground rice, simmered with milk. Mixed with rose syrup, it is topped with walnuts and rose petals in earthen pots, and cooled in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight before it is served chilled.
Easy and made with simple ingredients, gulab phirni is the perfect sweet treat you can make at home for the festival of Eid. Walnuts make for a great crunchy addition while rose petals bring a refreshing, beautiful look to the phirni, when served in earthen pots.
