How to Make Phirni

HideShow Media
1.
In thick, heavy bottom pan, toast rice with canola oil for 3-4 minutes. Then add milk and cardamom seeds and reduce over slim flame until rice is very tender and almost pasty in texture and milk reduces by a quarter.
2.
Add saffron stigmas, pistachios and sugar and stir well until flavors steep into mixture evenly.
3.
Check sweetness and consistency; phirni should have thick-pouring consistency.
4.
Set phirni in ramekin dishes equally and let cool initially at room temperature for 25 minutes then chill in refrigerator below 4°C for 45 minutes.
5.
Garnish with poppy seeds (optional).
