Firni is part-and-parcel of festivities in northern india. It is traditional rice custard made with rich, creamy milk and served in earthenware, which makes it all the more pleasing to the palate. Although it takes time to make firni, it can be cooked in advance. You can also speed up the process a bit by using a broad-bottomed non-stick pan, so that the milk thickens faster.
