amazingly quick... as usually with the rice phirni... we have to keep cooking the phirni till the rice cooks and that's when the milk thickens.. but here by using poha.. the time has almost reduced to less that half the time... and for people with a sweet tooth who cant resist the wait... try this recipe... i loved it warm too.. so indulge in..!!!
