There's something about festivals that intensifies our sweet cravings. Kheer and phirni are two of the festive staples we have grown up with. Be it Diwali or Eid, these rich milk puddings will always find their way on the table. Phirni is a dessert made with milk, broken rice and a whole lot of aromatic spices and nuts. The best part about phirni is that it is incredibly easy to make and is a mass favourite. Both kids and adults are quite likely to savour the delicacy with equal fervour. It is creamy, rich, and full of textures. If you are making the treat at home, it offers you enough room to be creative. If you do not like the raisins, keep them out. If you love biting into chunky nuts, go ahead and add as many as you want to the pudding. If you are a vegan, you can even ditch milk and opt for vegan alternatives like coconut milk, almond milk or soy milk to prepare the delicacy.
