I m soo delighted that I have made this lovely pudding and this brings me back to blogging Smile There should be an icebreaker ,when you want to make a comeback and this dessert did the same thing.
My understanding of this dessert was that it would taste  similar to Pal Paysam ( another milk rice pudding made in the traditional south Indian style) . But after compiling this dessert , my notion was proved wrong… This rice pudding is served as Prasad( a token after the prayer) in North India .


Whole Milk1.25 l
Cinnamon Stick2 *1” long
Rice3/4th Cup
Sugar3/4th –1 Cup
WalnutsFor Garnishing
Almonds – peeled & slicedFor Garnishing


  • Soak the rice in water for at least 2 hours . Drain the water and powder the rice until coarse.
  • In a steel saucepan , bring the milk to boil with the cinnamon stick .
  • Add the ground rice and stir at regular intervals. If you feel there is a lump formation happening , run ur hand blender through the mixture on the stove and give it a good whizz a few times..This process with help the lumps to vanish.
  • When the rice is completely cooked , include the sugar ,stirring occasionally. Cook until the sugar is completely dissolved .
  • Cook on low flame for another 10 minutes. Remove from the heat. Let the phirni cool down completely and allow it to chill for minimum 2-3 hours .
  • To serve ,Pour the phirni in individual matka’s , garnish with sliced almonds & walnuts.
