Today’s recipe Pheerni is a contribution by a little budding food enthusiast Navya. A twelve years old, she takes keen interest in trying recipes on her own. This is her signature recipe and she holds lot of pride in telling about it.
This is an easy way to make this beautiful, delicate dessert. Super easy to prep, just needs a night to chill well and then it is ready to serve. For scorching summers this is perfect food to cool your burning digestive system. I prepared it last night, I loved it as my breakfast. As this is the auspicious month of Ramadan I dedicate it to all my guests keeping Roza in this harsh summer. For rest of us, lets enjoy it anyways without any reason!
I made a Rose flavor Pheerni, so once our mixture is at room temperature I added a little rose essence and very little natural Rose Syrup to give it natural Rose aroma. There is a popular variation in Pheerni – it is saffron. So once you are boiling the mixture and adding Rice, add Saffron (diluted with milk) to make your Saffron flavored Pheerni.
