Doesn't that look simply mouth-watering? Shilpa also revealed on Instagram that jalebis with rabdi is among Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh's favoured desserts! Phirni and jalebis are two of the most loved Indian desserts, served during iftar- the daily 'fast-breaking' spread that Muslims indulge in during the holy month of Ramadan. During the rest of the day, Muslims refrain from eating even a morsel of food. The iftar spread is rich and sumptuous and it usually consists of a lot of non-vegetarian delicacies and flavourful desserts. Phirni is a dessert that is eaten both during sehri or the early morning meal and iftar.
Phirni is prepared by slow-cooking rice flour in milk. It is then spiced with green cardamom powder, which gives it a rich aroma. It is topped off with crushed almonds and pistachios, as well as dry fruits and refrigerated for about two or three hours, before being served. Other desserts that are often served with Ramadan meals include baklava, sheer khurma or sevaiya and shahi tukda. However, phirni is one of the most common desserts featured in these meals, because it's easy-to-prepare at home and always tastes great! Well, we must say, Shilpa Shetty does know how to celebrate every single festival, the right way!
